Popcaan was not unruly: Artist was in the UK to promote a clothing line


Popcaan had to be quarantined last week – missing his court date in the process – because he was returning from the UK where he had been promoting his Unruly clothing line.

Lawyer Matthew Hyatt made the disclosure to Loop news in light of widespread speculation after the artist – whose real name is Andre Sutherland – missed his Thursday September 2 court date, resulting in the issuance of an arrest warrant.

However, the warrant was suspended until Popcaan’s next scheduled appearance at Yallahs Traffic Court in St Thomas on November 4.

“Mr Sutherland was in the UK promoting his clothing line and arrived on the island the day before his court date. He has sought to comply with the government’s requirement to quarantine in accordance with COVID-19 protocols, ”said Hyatt.

“In addition, while an arrest warrant has been issued, it has been declared until its next court date. It’s standard procedure every time someone shows up in court and misses their court date, ”he explained.

On June 3, Popcaan pleaded not guilty to a series of traffic charges, including driving a motor vehicle without a license, driving without insurance or fitness, without a fixed license plate, driving without a helmet and reckless driving.

The 32-year-old artist was charged in late April after police stopped his convoy of nine vehicles in St Thomas.
