WAYNE South — a music-video director, who had borrowed a drone from Mr Vegas but claimed it was lost at sea — is scheduled to return to the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court in Half-Way-Tree on December 21 to make a partial payment of US$600 to the entertainer.

South, 44, had his bail of larceny by trick extended by Parish Judge Vaughn Smith last Friday.

According to Mr Vcgas, whose given name is Clifford Smith, he had lent the drone to South to use on a music-video shoot on July 7. After the shoot ended, Mr Vegas said he left the director using the equipment and went to the studio. However, later when he contacted South, he was given the runaround. South later disclosed that the drone had crashed into the sea and was lost. The director said the remote was handed over to one of his friends.

Mr Vegas said South had agreed to repay him for the drone and return the video's final cut, but defaulted on his promises.

South told the judge he needed time to repay the artiste, as he was going through a rough patch but had some jobs lined up. South also accused Mr Vegas for going online and making derogatory statements about him.

Mr Vegas gave the total cost of the drone as US1,650.
