Yonkers police said Haywood had a prior history of reckless driving and a long rap sheet, including arrests on drug and weapon charges since 2003. He spent four years in prison after a 2005 guilty plea to selling crack cocaine, and was jailed again in 2019 after pleading to felony drug possession, authorities said. In April 2012, Haywood was shot multiple times as he left a store. – Gregory W. Chupa
