U.S. Marshals said they arrested Joseph at the Shire at Somerdale in Somerdale, New Jersey, Thursday afternoon. It was not disclosed why he was at that location.

Bensalem police have changed Joseph on multiple counts of aggravated assault, reckless endangerment and drug charges, according to court documents.

New Jersey Department of Corrections records show Joseph previously served nine months in 2023 in the Camden County Jail on an assault and firearms charge.

Joseph was also arrested as part of the Mercer County Prosecutor's Office's "Operation Checkmate" in 2014, which saw the arrest of 20 Trenton residents who were members of the 793 set of the Bloods gang, according to a report by NJ.com.
