Further to our update yesterday about members of Vybz Kartel’s entourage being involved in an alleged brawl at an airport in the Bahamas earlier this week, the accused entourage members appeared in court yesterday, and more details have emerged.
Twenty-four-year-old Ainsley ‘Notnice’ Morris, 22-year-old André ‘Popcaan’ Sutherland and 26-year-old Lenburgh ‘Leng’ McDonald, all prominent members of Vybz Kartel’s Portmore Empire crew, appeared in court in the Bahamas yesterday, to answer to the charges of causing grievous harm and damage. The three were accused of attacking a Spirit Airlines pilot, after he reportedly tried to order a group of Kartel’s entourage (including several females) out of a male bathroom in the departure terminal of the Lynden Pindling International Airport.
The pilot was reportedly slapped in the face and punched in his left eye, but allegedly retaliated by punching a member of the group, knocking him unconscious. He then ran out of the restroom and called for security, and although some of his alleged attackers were already on board the plane (awaiting departure) by the time he returned with security, the three were pointed out and taken off the plane.
Popcaan reportedly pleaded not guilty to the charges and was acquitted, while Notnice and Leng pleaded guilty to the charges of damage and grievous harm, and are expected to return to court this morning for sentencing.
