The artiste, whose real name is David Brooks, was found guilty by Resident Magistrate Wilson Smith and fined $100,000 or six months.
He was fined $80,000 or six months on the charge of assault and another $20,000 or six months for malicious destruction of property. Both sentences are to run concurrently the RM also ruled.
The conviction came out of an incident that took place in rural St James in July last year. Brooks had injured a man who he claimed was blocking his way by using the wheel of his Sports Utility Vehicle to squeeze the man between his car door and the car the man was driving, causing swelling to his foot and a cut to his shoulder.
The court also heard that the damage to the car was about $25,000. (Jamaica Observer)
