(Jamaica Observer) Tommy Lee Sparta was rushed to the Cornwall Regional Hospital in Montego Bay, St James, after experiencing a bout of vomiting while in police lock-up on Thursday evening.
His lawyer, Ernest “Ernie” Smith confirmed the development with the Jamaica Observer last night.
“He was taken to the Cornwall Regional Hospital for treatment and subsequently, discharged,” he told the Observer.
Tommy Lee Sparta is spending his second weekend behind bars at the Freeport Police Station in Montego Bay.
Smith said he’s convinced that the lawmen are deliberately keeping the dancehall deejay detained, despite not being charged. The entertainer has been in custody since Tuesday, July 7.
“They [the police] told me the final session was this morning at 7:00 am. The question-and-answer session took place…I was advised by the senior officer that: ‘That’s it! The police have no further interest in him’ and that he would be released today [yesterday],” said Smith.
“They are punishing Mr Russell without just cause,” he continued.
