On Friday, Elephant Man was released without charge by investigators attached to the police’s Criminal Investigation Branch, CIB.

The Dancehall Artiste was questioned by investigators at the Constant Spring Police Station.

A mansion he owns in Upper St. Andrew was also searched by the Police. Nothing of interest to law enforcement was reportedly found.

The DJ was questioned about a video which went viral on the Internet. A scantily clad woman could be seen in the video brandishing a black and silver coloured object. The woman then handed the object to a man who resembles the Dancehall entertainer.

The Firearm’s Licensing Authority, FLA, commented on the video. The FLA indicated that Elephant Man is not authorized to handle a legal firearm.

Mr. Townsend says his client denies handling either an imitation or a real firearm.
