Boyd was arrested and charged with leaving the scene of an accident resulting in death and failure to yield to a pedestrian.
The judge was set to release him under strict supervision following a court appearance just one day after the arrest.

Judge James Clynes initially gave Boyd a supervised release during his arraignment hearing.
But then another prosecutor, Assistant District Attorney Bernard Eyth, told him: “Any crime that is alleged to have caused the death of another person is a [cauzione] eligible offense.”
After being informed that Boyd could be held on bail, Judge Clynes told the court about his latest decision: “Earlier, a mistake was made when the court was informed that this was not bail-eligible.
“So that prior decision was as mistake. I’m now correcting that mistake.”
Boyd’s lawyer, Angela Harris, claimed that bail was not needed, though he was returned back in custody.
Authorities told the court that the rider of an unlicensed electric scooter involved in the hit-and-run death was allegedly aware that he hit her.

Police said they built their case on security videotape, which showed Banes walking in a crosswalk on the Upper West Side in early June when she was struck by the scooter after it allegedly ran a red light.
A police officer who reviewed a video from the scene said in court papers that the footage shows both the pedestrian and the operator of the electric scooter fall to the ground.
