The article says they were arrested on unrelated attempted murder charges but my guess is that they needed to get them off the street after that warning from J Prince.

The men who attacked YBN Almighty Jay last week have been arrested on unrelated charges, per TMZ. According to a published report, the group has been identified as the Jack Boyz, a street gang with an open dossier in the NYPD filing system. Zae Numbafive, the individual who was seen brandishing YBN Almighty Jay’s stolen chain shortly thereafter, plays a prominent role in the gang.
Zae Numbafive was among the four Jack Boyz’ members arrested in an unrelated Federal sting. Their Federal indictment is far more grave than any punitive measures that could have been handed down to them relating to the YBN incident. According to papers obtained by TMZ, the Jack Boyz’ members are facing charges of attempted murder in the aid of racketeering. The charges stem all stem from the shooting of unmarked police officer. Another suspect within the group is still at large.
