CLIFF-TWANG IN JAIL - In custody for child support case
Crystal Harrison, Staff Reporter

Clifton 'Clif-Twang' Brown, the man who rose to popularity with the catchy slang 'Nobody Canna Cross It', is in police lock-up after appearing in court for the lack of child maintenance.

A reliable source close to the case has told THE STAR that Brown, who has been back and forth in the Family Court, was taken into custody in December.

He has been granted $80,000 bail, however, he has not taken up the offer.

Brown is to appear in the Family Court on Thursday.

In August 12, 2011, THE STAR reported that Brown was hauled before the courts by the mother of his children, his wife, for lack of child maintenance.

He was arrested and brought to the Family Court in 2011, after a summons was served on him by the Mavis Bank police.

The article stated that Brown had denied the complainant's allegations in court, and had stated that he had proof that he was paying regular child maintenance.

He was to take the proof of his regular payments to court. Brown became an overnight celebrity following the release of the immensely popular song Nobody Canna Cross It.

The remix was done by DJ Powa after Brown appeared on a newscast where he called on authorities to rebuild the bridge in his Mavis Bank community.

The song also was posted on American news station CBS' website.

Brown's cut-up received more than 1.6 million views on YouTube, and he later signed an endorsement deal with telecommunications giant LIME.

The Internet sensation then had said that he was not interested in becoming a dancehall artiste, as his wish was to pursue music in the gospel arena because he is a devoted Christian.
