“Give man a few tickets and a try use it mek news 🤔f**king weirdos 😂😂😂 hope uno get promotion,” he wrote.

Not only that, Popcaan believes he’s being targetted by the St Thomas police, and because of this, he says he will be avoiding his native parish.

According to local media, Popcaan whose given name is Andre Sutherland was slapped with multiple breaches of the Road Traffic Act while travelling from St Thomas on Sunday. The police reportedly acted on intelligence.

These breaches included; driving an unlicensed motorcycle, driving without insurance coverage, having no valid certificate of fitness, having no registration plate affixed, driving without a helmet, driving with no side-view mirror, and failing to produce a driver’s license.

He is to appear before the Yallahs Traffic Court on June 3, 2021.
