Busy Signal broke his vow to "nah go a jail a again" when he spent the night at the Gun Court Remand Centre.  Busy Signal reportedly fled the USA in March 2002. He got bail in March 2002 after serving some time on a conspiracy charge. He then fled to Jamaica, and experts believe that he may have removed an  an ankle bracelet — used as a tracking device by US authorities to ascertain the whereabouts of a suspect on bail — and has been living a high-profile life in Jamaica since that time.   


It is believed that he was implicated in a narcotics offence committed in Minnesota, and is to be extradited for failing to appear before the court to answer charges in relation to that offence.


Title 31A of the 2nd Edition of American JurisprudenceExtradition, makes this proposition of law:

"To be a fugitive from justice within the meaning of the federal extradition statute, the accused need only be absent from the demanding state when it seeks to have him answer for the  crime, and to be found within the jurisdiction of another state. It is not necessary to establish that the accused was indicted before leaving the state, that he fled in order to avoid prosecution, or that he even knew charges were pending against him. A party remains a fugitive until the charges which have been filed against him in the state from which he fled are dropped."
