(Jamaica Observer) Popcaan pleaded not guilty to several alleged traffic violations when he appeared in the Yallahs Traffic Court in St Thomas yesterday morning.
The 32-year-old dancehall deejay, who is represented by Matthew Hyatt, also had his bail extended to September 2 when he is scheduled to return to court.
He is charged with operating an unlicensed motor vehicle, driving without insurance coverage, having no valid certificate of fitness, having no fixed registration plate, driving without a helmet, and driving with no side-view mirror.
According to police reports, the deejay — whose given name is Andre Sutherland — was travelling with a convoy in a section of Bath, St Thomas, on April 25, when he was stopped and subsequently charged. At the time, he was also unable to present a driver’s licence.
