Tyshawn Taylor, whose brief career with the Brooklyn Nets is best known for bumping into Jason Kidd and spilling a cup of soda in a stalling tactic, was arrested for allegedly using a counterfeit money order to gain $1,000 in cash at a supermarket in Hoboken.
Taylor, 25, turned himself into police on Aug. 6 after submitting the bogus money order to the Big Banner Food Store on May 18, Sgt. Steven Kranz of the Hoboken police told the Daily News on Friday. Taylor is a Hoboken native.
When the store owners, who have known Taylor and his family for years, realized the money order was a sham and with Taylor refusing to pay them back, a complaint was filed with Hoboken police in late July, store manager Luisiana Jimenez told The News.
