Veteran artiste Brigadier Jerry charged in the United States

Brigadier Jerry (Born Robert Russell September 25th 1957 Kingston Jamaica) has found himself in a very precarious legal hot water in the United States

Reports surfacing highlights that the icon has been slapped with a number of charges. The burden he now tries to shed are difficult as he faces the master charges of carrying a pistol without permit, first-degree robbery, first-degree reckless endangerment, illegal transfer of a pistol and altering a serial number on a firearm.

Information received allegedly states that on November 13th the artiste was engaged in a card game at a popular West Indian restaurant called Bertie’s, in Connecticut. The icon then made an alarm about his wallet and money being stolen. The now embattled cultural Ambassador then left the restaurant and later returned.

The scene which transpired was nothing the card players and restaurant patrons could have planned for prior to entering the restaurant that evening. The entertainer upon returning to the restaurant fired shots from a firearm, this immediately sent patrons running and seeking cover to protect themselves. Though like a movie scene with the star villain being Jamaica’s own Brigadier Jerry, allegedly none of the patrons were hurt in the shooting. The matter was reported to the Waterbury Police. Jerry is said to have left the scene in a black BMW vehicle and was located at a Hill Street address in Connecticut later.

Brigadier Jerry is one of Jamaica’s loved cultural icons who boasts a music catalogue with albums such as Jamaica, Freedom Street, Sister Carol and Friends among others the 62 year old artiste is famous for his performances in the genres reggae and dancehall he is also sibling to another cultural veteran sister Nancy.
