Deejay Chase Cross, cousin to Mavado, is scheduled to appear at the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court in Half-Way-Tree today after being re-arrested on Monday.

According to the Corporate Communications Unit (CCU) of the Jamaica Constabulary Force, the deejay will be answering to charges of assault occasioning bodily harm.

It was last Friday that Cross was offered bail after being one of five men who were detained at Mavado's Norbrook property in St Andrew.

Pierre Rogers represent Cross, but told the Jamaica Observer's weekly Splash that he was unable to provide a comment without his client's consent when contacted yesterday.

Contact made to the Constant Spring police confirmed that the artiste was being detained at the station.

Chase Cross, given name Sameer Coombs, reportedly assaulted Anthony Goulbourne, a man accused of a shooting at Mavado in his Cassava Piece hometown on June 2. The CCU reported that Mavado (given name David Brooks) got in an argument with an individual in the St Andrew community. The person left the scene and returned with a group of men, one of whom shot at Mavado, who escaped without injury. Mavado is currently in the United States.

Police have requested that Mavado turn himself in for questioning, in relation to a surge in violence in Cassava Piece. But his attorney, Tamika Harris, told the Observer she is uncertain of when he will return to the island due to prior commitments.

Mavado's 17-year-old son remains in police custody, after being detained as well.

Chase Cross got his break in 2009 as part of Mavado's Gullyside crew, with the song Better Days. He is also known for songs like Can't Stop Us, Burnin' Up (featuring Mavado) and Money Me Want (featuring Flexx). His Gully Thing EP is set for release today.
