Fast-rising Dancehall artiste Skeng was arrested at the Norman Manley International Airport (NMIA) in Kingston, Jamaica on Tuesday, May 24 at approximately 1:50 p.m.
The Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF) confirmed that the ‘Gvnman Shift’ entertainer was arrested and charged with disorderly behaviour and resisting arrest when he got into an argument with a member of Port security at the airport.
Skeng’s attorney-at-law, Christopher Townsend disclosed that his client was pepper-sprayed during the confrontation, however, it is unclear if it was done by security forces at the airport or police officers. Despite the arrest, Townsend lauded the efforts of the law enforcement officers who he says assisted the young artiste to alleviate the pain in his eyes.
The 21-year-old entertainer whose real name is Kevaun Douglas was heading to Trinidad and Tobago where he was scheduled to headline the Revival Return of Dancehall event on May 28.
He has since been offered bail and is scheduled to appear before the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court to answer the charges on June 21, 2022.
