Popular Jamaican dancehall entertainer David Brooks, better known as ‘Mavado’, was yesterday charged with assault following an incident at a nightclub in New Kingston.

“The entertainer has been charged following an altercation between members of his entourage and a member of the security forces,” Detective Sergeant Radcliffe Levy, the officer in charge of crime at the Half-Way-Tree Police Station told the Observer.

Details surrounding the incident were not clear up to last night but allegations are that about 3:30 am yesterday an altercation developed between a security officer and a member of the entertainer’s team who allegedly refused to be searched. A scuffle allegedly developed and a member of the entertainer’s team was shot and injured. He was admitted to hospital in serious condition.

The police, following the incident, named Brooks and another popular entertainer ‘Bounty Killer’, who was also at the club, as persons of interest and ordered them to turn themselves over to the Half-Way-Tree police.
Police said the two men, hours later, turned up at the station where Bounty Killer, whose real name is Rodney Pryce, was questioned and released. Brooks was, however, charged with assault occasioning bodily harm and was offered station bail in the sum of $30,000.

He is scheduled to appear before the Half-Way-Tree Resident Magistrate’s Court to answer the charge on June 23.Brooks was last month charged with malicious destruction of property in the St Ann’s Bay Resident Magistrate’s Court but was later freed after the complainant in the case dropped the matter.
