Failure to pay the fine will result in Williams serving 30-days in prison.

Williams has been remanded to the traffic court on South Camp Road in Kingston, where he’ll be tried for cases originating from 2015 to 2017.

Williams was arrested on Friday after he was stopped by members of the Constabulary’s Public Safety and Traffic Enforcement Branch on Slipe Road in St. Andrew.

Following checks, it was discovered Williams has over 1,000 outstanding traffic tickets.

Further checks revealed Williams had three warrants issued for his arrest.

Meanwhile, 26-year-old Cleveland Dockery of Arnett Gardens South  St Andrew, was fined $49,000 for having more than 100 traffic tickets and 10 outstanding warrants.

He’ll serve 7 days in prison if he fails to pay the fine.

Dockery was also charged with uttering fraudulent documents.

He was granted bail.

But he’ll appear in the Kingston and St. Andrew Parish Court on September 26 where he’ll face criminal charges.
