Allegations are that dancehall artiste Popcaan is among three persons arrested by the Bahamian police on Monday, after being involved in a fight at the airport.
Reports surfaced on the internet on Monday that Popcaan was arrested in the Bahamas for being involved in a brawl at the airport but no further details were given.
An article published in the The Bahama Journal titled ‘Airport Brawl’, alleged that “Vybz Kartel and nine members of his party reportedly attacked a Bahamian Spirit Airlines
first officer in the Lynden Pindling International Airport. Vybz Kartel allegedly denied any involvement in the incident.”
Vybz Kartel and the Portmore Empire went to the Bahamas on the weekend to perform at ‘Sebas Birthday Bash’ that was scheduled to be held in Nassau.
It was reported that some men were in the men’s restroom with two women and would not allow anyone to enter. After being denied entry, it is alleged that the pilot called the airport authorities but was attacked by the entourage soon after.
The article stated that the Assistant Commissioner of Police, Marvin Dames, confirmed the incident, noting that it occurred shortly after 2 p.m. on Monday
The article further stated that three of the men were arrested, while the rest of the entourage were allowed to board the plane.
When asked about the incident, a source close to the Portmore Empire said he was not aware. But he did confirm that Popcaan was among those from the group who left for the show in the Bahamas.
“A today dem did fi forward,” the source said yesterday.
THE STAR tried to get in contact with Popcaan and Vybz Kartel’s publicist but was unsuccessful.
