There's no truth to the rumours that the officers asked Portmore Empire's rising young star Popcaan the question 'a weh yu get da new spliff de dawdie?' right before they arrested him for smoking ganja on May 9th. What we here at one876 can confirm is that he will return to court on July 7th to face those charges.

The artiste, whose real name is Andre Sutherland, was arrested and charged on May 9th after he was reportedly caught in the act by the police. The entertainer who is represented by attorney-at-law Alando Terrelonge, has pleaded not guilty to the charge.

The allegations are that on the day in question, policemen were in patrol on Mannings Hill Road at about 8 p.m. when they spotted a motor car with four men aboard. The car was stopped and the entertainer, who was driving the car, was seen with a ganja spliff in his mouth. He was taken to the Constant Spring police station where he was arrested and charged, then later released on $5,000 bail.

The deejay is known for the smash hit, Clarks, with Portmore Empire leader Vybz Kartel and stablemate Gaza Slim. He recently shot a video
for his latest hit, Gangsta City, which is in excellent rotation on local cable channels.
