Penitent Bad Boy Trevor ready to face the court
Garfield 'Bad Boy Trevor' Reid
Actor and night club proprietor Garfield 'Bad Boy Trevor' Reid is scheduled to appear in the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court in Half-Way-Tree next Friday to answer to breaches of the Disaster Risk Management Act, Noise Abatement Act, S.O.E Act and Spirit Licence Act.
He has chosen not to retain a lawyer to plead his cause before the courts.
"From my arrest until now, I have taken to my social media platforms and wholeheartedly joined the fight against COVID-19. I have learned a lot and gained a lot of experience as a public figure, not only to use my space in society to entertain people but also to help to do the right thing to safeguard and protect my country and my people especially in times of crisis like these," Reid told Loop News.
In March, members of the public were duly warned that failure to adhere to the restrictions under the Disaster Risk Management Act will amount to a fine of one million dollars or 12 months in prison.
Reid was arrested and charged after a police team raided a pool party being hosted by him at Plantation Drive, St Andrew in March.
Reid, 50, was charged with breaches of the Disaster Risk Management Act, Noise Abatement Act, S.O.E Act and Spirit Licence Act. He was arrested alongside 22-year-old cashier Keneil Smith. The police shut down the party and seized a console and a quantity of liquor.
