Deejay Chase Cross had his bail extended by Parish Judge Broderick Smith when he appeared at the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court in Half-Way-Tree yesterday.
Cross, who is the cousin of Mavado, was rearrested on Monday and detained in lock-up at the Constant Spring Police Station for assault charges. This came just two days after the artiste was granted bail in the sum of $40,000 for charges of assault occasioning bodily harm.
“I must say the judge remarked that the police had no right to put him back in custody for the same charge which he was granted station bail just two days before,” attorney-at-law representing the deejay, Pierre Rogers, told the Jamaica Observer.
Rogers said his client, whose given name is Sameer Coombs, is baffled by the rearrest and detention.
“He is just as confused as I am,” said Rogers.
Cross is scheduled to reappear at the same court for a July 6 mention date.
Cross was among five men detained at Mavado’s Norbrook property in St Andrew, two weekends ago. He was charged with assaulting Anthony Goulbourne, a man accused of a shooting at Mavado in his Cassava Piece community on June 2. According to police, Mavado (given name David Brooks) got in an argument with an individual in the St Andrew community. The person left the scene and returned with a group of men, one of whom shot at Mavado, who escaped without injury. Mavado, who resides in the United States, is currently being sought by police for question in relation to violence in the area.
Chase Cross got his break in 2009 as part of Mavado’s Gullyside crew, with the song Better Days. He is also known for songs like Can’t Stop Us, Burnin’ Up (featuring Mavado) and Money Me Want (featuring Flexx).
