Dancehall artiste Popcaan is to appear before the Yallahs Traffic Court on June 3, to answer to multiple breaches of the Road Traffic Act following an incident yesterday in St Thomas.

According to reports, the artiste, born Andre Sutherland, was reportedly travelling with his nine-vehicle entourage, when they were stopped by police.

Popcaan, who was reportedly riding a motorcycle, failed to produce his driver’s licence.

He was found to be in violation of several aspects of the Road Traffic Act, including driving an unlicensed motorcycle, driving without insurance coverage, having no valid certificate of fitness, having no registration plate affixed, driving without a helmet and driving with no side-view mirror.

Andre Harrison, 39, who was also travelling with Popcaan’s entourage, was arrested and charged for having offensive weapon.

He was offered $20,000 station bail and is to also set to appear before the St Thomas Parish Court on June 3.
