Actor Garfield “Bad Boy Trevor” Reid

Jamaican actor Garfield “Bad Boy Trevor” Reid was fined $150,000 or three months in prison when he appeared in the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court on Wednesday.

Reid was arrested and charged for staging a pool party in Plantation Heights in March last year.

The actor was found to be in breach of the Disaster Risk Management Act, the Noise Abatement Act, the S.O.E Act, and the Spirit Licence Act.

At the time, Reid issued an apology to the public.

“It was a wrong, selfish, and uncalculated move on my part to have planned such an event in light of the seriousness of the virus that’s going around. My name carries a lot of influence. So, I take full responsibility for my actions. As such, I owe my fans, family and the Government an apology. I am sorry,” the statement read.

 His co-accused, 22-year-old Keneil Smith was fined $60,000.
