DANCEHALL Deejay Mavado, real name ‘David Brooks’, was ordered to return to court in late September when he appeared in the Montego Bay Resident Magistrate’s Court to answer to charges of assault and malicious destruction of property this morning.
Mavado’s attorney, Martyn Thomas, filed an application before Resident Magistrate Coralin Tie, that the matter be referred to mediation instead of trial. But Tie postponed her judgement on the application until a full medical report was available.
Mavado, whose real name is David Brooks, was charged following an incident near Anchovy, St James last month.
He is accused of encouraging members of his entourage to attack a man and his son after the man refused to move his vehicle to allow the deejay to avoid potholes.
The man was allegedly beaten all over his body with a machete and his son reportedly hit in the face with machete causing him to lose several teeth.
