Popcaan openly mocked the ridiculous amount of his fine, detailing the $1,500 penalty for each guilty offense.
He said: “Dem charge mi $6000 fi all a dem ting yah. Mi need help fi pay dem. Unuh start wah fund fi me right now fi pay dem sumn yah, please.”
The Family deejay was fined J$6000 after pleading guilty to using indecent language, disorderly conduct, using abusive and calumnious language and issuing a threat to police officers. Popcaan refused to apologize or otherwise utter any statements toward the police.
The police were forced to bring the curtains down on the event after the promoters exceeded the time allowed for its staging. Popcaan reacted angrily to the abrupt lock-off in videos widely circulating on social media and launched into an angry tirade peppered with expletives.
Popcaan was last before the courts on several traffic violations in November 2021. He was slapped with a $10,000 fine after pleading guilty in the Yallahs Traffic Court in St Thomas.
The deejay also has a lawsuit against the Attorney General over an allegedly defamatory Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) press release which will be settled through the route of mediation in that matter.
