Councilor for the Montego Bay West Division in North West St. James, the Jamaica Labour Party’s, David Brown, was freed of assault charges on Friday.

Councilor Brown was freed when he appeared in the Montego Bay Parish Court. He’d been accused of assaulting a senior citizen last year.

On Friday, the complainant indicated that he did not wish to proceed with the case.

The charge was dismissed and Councilor Brown was told that he’s free to go. He told our news centre on Friday that he was acting in self-defence.
