Dancehall artiste, Popcaan, pleaded guilty to road traffic violations when he appeared in the St. Thomas Parish Court today.
Popcaan’s given name is Andre Sutherland.
The St. Thomas native took to social media shortly after the verdict to say he pleaded guilty in court.
The entertainer was fined a total of $10,000 dollars for the traffic violations.
For operating a motor vehicle without insurance and for driving without a helmet, Popcaan was fined $2,000 each breach. In addition, Popcaan was fined $3,000 for operating a vehicle without a valid fitness, and $3,000 for operating an unlicensed motor car.
The charges stem from an April incident where the 32-year-old was a part of a group that was stopped by the police.
After the police’s intervention, Popcaan took to social media and claimed he was being targeted by the St. Thomas police – an allegation the police rejected.
