ST ANN'S BAY, St Ann – Dancehall artiste Mavado was freed today when he appeared in the St Ann's Bay Resident Magistrate court. The entertainer, real name David Brooks, was charged by the St Ann Police last month with malicious destruction of property.
The charge stemmed from a fracas outside a night club in Runaway Bay in the parish on May 22, where he was arrested and subsequently offered $50,000 station bail.
Mavado was freed earlier today, together with his manager Julian Jones-Griffith, after the complainant in the case told the court that she no longer had an interest in the matter.
Presiding magistrate Andrea Thomas then made a no case order and Brooks walked from the courtroom a free man.
However, several other men who were reportedly a part of Brook's entourage and were also charged in relation to the incident are to return to court on August 4 when the case against them will be mentioned.
Their bails were extended until that date.
