This morning, the New York Post sheds more light on the whole grenade standoff at 106 Norfolk Street last week.  And as you might imagine, the story takes another turn for the weird.

Apartment resident Allen Hasty heard that transsexual porn star Kayla Coxx would be in town, and called her cell to “hang out.” Coxx agreed, but charged the $2,000 escort rate.  Her limo driver stopped by 106 Norfolk at 3 am.  For the next couple hours, Hasty wanted to “absorb as much time and energy of mine that he can,” including offering drugs.  But when it came time to pay up, Hasty was short.

“He had me looking through all of his [stuff] for the rest of the money and for the painting.”

She spotted a silver gun in a bedroom drawer and a grenade was sitting on a hallway table, she told cops. She left when her driver showed up to check on her.

From here we know how the story ends.  Police arrived on scene at the ass-crack of dawn and evacuated 106 Norfolk. There was a brief standoff in which Hasty reportedly resisted arrest by threatening with inert grenades.  NYPD Bomb Squad uncovered “two inert MK-II grenades and a .40-caliber artillery round.” Hasty is being charged with drug possession and criminal use of drug paraphernalia.
