Mavado’s cousin Chase Cross was released on bail.
The dancehall deejay appeared in court on Friday with his attorney who applied for bail. Parish Judge Broderick Smith set his bail at $40,000 and he bonded out of jail that same afternoon. Chase Cross, who real name is Sameer Coombs, was arrested last week and charged with assault. Cops say he was involved in a confrontation between Mavado and Anthony Goulbourne in Cassava Piece in Saturday (June 2).
Goulbourne, who is currently behind bars, left the scene and returned with two other armed men who shot at Mavado. The Gullyside singjay escaped the hail of bullets and fled the scene to the Constant Spring police department where he made a report. The alleged dispute started between Mavado’s teenage son and Goulbourne and the dancehall artist reportedly went to the area to settle the dispute and that’s when things got ugly.
Mavado’s son is currently facing murder and weapons charges for a reprisal killing that took place days after the shooting incident. His court date is set for Monday (June 18).
