KINGSTON, Jamaica —-
Entertainer Mavado is to be tried next year February on allegations that he assaulted a police officer at a New Kingston night club in June of last year.
The February 12, 2013 trial date was set when the deejay appeared in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate’s Court today.
Attorney Peter Champagnie was successful in having the court vacate a warrant that was issued for Mavado’s arrest, when he did not appear on his previous court date.
Mavado, whose real name is David Brooks, is charged with assault occasioning bodily harm, stemming from the incident in which a member of his entourage, Conroy Edwards, was fatally shot by the policeman on the steps outside the nightclub.
