RASBERT TURNER, PORTMORE STAR Writer
PORTMORE TOP SINGER, Clifroy 'I-Wayne' Taylor, was arrested and charged by the Bridgeport police with assaulting a policeman, resisting arrest and obstructing police. He is to appear in the Spanish Town Resident Magistrate's Court on Tuesday.
THE PORTMORE STAR learnt that on Sunday, March 26 about 2:20 p.m., the police were on patrol in the Liberty Hill area of Garveymeade in Portmore when a man identified as Renardo Yap was seen smoking ganja from a chilum pipe.
He was approached by the police who pointed out the offence and was in the process of arresting him when it is alleged that I-Wayne intervened. It is understood that the policeman was grabbed and prevented from taking Yap to the police station.
Both men were, however, taken to the station where Yap was subsequently charged by Constable Campton Russell with smoking ganja. The singer was charged with possession of a chilum pipe and smoking ganja along with the other charges.
I-Wayne rose to fame two years ago with number one hit Can't Satisfy Her and followed this up with others called Lava Ground and Nuh Fi Bleach, among other songs. Both men were granted station bail in the sum of $20,000 each.
