Tuba Man Killer Arrested Yet Again


One of the three teens who killed “Tuba Man” Edward McMichael — the same one who allegedly bragged about the killing when arrested earlier this year — is back in jail for another alleged crime.

Police say the suspect, now 18, was one of two teens arrested after an incident early Tuesday in the Central District. It’s his third arrest since killing McMichael, and he’s scheduled to have a bail hearing Wednesday afternoon.

Police said they were called about 12:45 a.m. Tuesday regarding an armed robbery in the 500 block of 23rd Avenue South. The victim told an officer she was hanging out with the suspect and a 17-year-old, and she couldn’t get her cell phone back when dropped off at her house.

“The victim attempted to take the phone back, but the suspect slashed at her with a knife, cutting the sleeve of her jacket,” according to a police statement. “The other suspect then pointed a handgun at the victim and told her to get out of the car.”
