Jamaica: Beenie Man fined $150,000 for DRMA breach

Dancehall star Beenie Man was slapped with a $150,000 fine in the St Elizabeth Parish Court on Monday after pleading guilty on April 19 for breaching the Disaster Risk Management Act (DRMA).

“Beenie Man was fined $150,000 and the maximum fine at the time the offence was committed was $250,000, so we can live with that,” attorney-at-law Roderick Gordon told Loop News.

An additional charge of breaching the Noise Abatement Act was thrown out during the deejay’s last court appearance.

The ‘Sim Simma’ deejay was slapped with the two charges in connection with an event in Shrewsbury district in St Elizabeth on November 29.

The Black River police turned up at the event and dispersed the crowd, and Beenie was warned for prosecution.
