DANCEHALL Deejay, Elephant Man, was ordered to return to court for trial in November after he was charged by police for stealing electricity in June.
The artiste, whose real name is O'Niel Bryan, appeared in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court to answer to the charge this morning and was told that his trial date would be on November 30.
He was arrested at his home on Hillcrest Avenue in St Andrew in early June after a team from the Jamaica Public Service Company and the police, were carrying out an operation in the area when they visited a property housing several apartments and inspected light meters.
The team found that one of the meters had no socket and on closer inspection the team allegedly observed that the meter contained an illegal connection, which went directly to an apartment they said was occupied by the entertainer.
Police say several appliances were connected to the illegal connection in found in an apartment occupied by the entertainer, who is popularly known as the 'Energy God'.
He is being represented by attorney Linda Wright.
