Dancehall artiste Popcaan has been fined for assaulting a police officer in an incident which took place at the Norman Manley International airport in 2013.
According to reports, the Unruly Boss/Kingpin was fined twenty-five thousand dollars (25,000JMD) or six months imprisonment, after pleading guilty to the charge of assault occasioning actual bodily harm.
Reports are that, on November 24, 2013, Popcaan was preparing to leave the island when he was stopped by the police who requested a search of his luggage.
The ‘Weed is my best friend’ deejay reportedly refused to be searched and became boisterous, using expletives to the officers.
During the dispute the deejay allegedly used a Hennessy bottle to hit one of the policemen in the face.
