Popular deejay Moses ‘Beenie Man’ Davis left the island for a 22-show European tour yesterday. However, not before he and selector Rolexx were charged with assault occasioning bodily harm.
The Hunts Bay police charged the men following Saturday’s altercation with LA Lewis, who reported to the Duhaney Park police that he was attacked and punched in the mouth. The two were involved in an accident in which Beenie’s Audi was damaged.
The incident reportedly occurred along Perkins Boulevard, St Andrew, following the funeral service for slain Voicemail member Oneil Edwards.
Police said Beenie Man turned himself in about 8 a.m. and was later granted $100,000 station bail after being interviewed and charged. Beenie Man will break from the tour to attend court.
“I made an application for bail for both of them and was successful. Superintendent Hewitt and Deputy Superintendent Malcolm of the Hunts Bay police were extremely cooperative,” attorney-at-law Charles Ganga-Singh, who represents Beenie Man and Rolexx told THE STAR.
Beenie Man, the Grammy-winning artiste, was not his usual outspoken self yesterday as he decided to hide from the media.
While THE STAR team awaited him to exit the Hunts Bay Police Station, he somehow managed to get into a waiting Toyota Coaster undetected. People in his entourage waved and laughed as he was whisked away.
“Unnu get weh unnu come fah eeeh,” a woman claiming to be a relative of Beenie Man jokingly said.
