Jamaican dancehall artiste Popcaan has been jailed in Antigua following a tussle with a policeman on stage during a performance last night.

The tussle happened after Popcaan intervened in a confrontation between the cop and a fan who had made his way to the performance area.

"Mi seh nuh deal with them so rough," Popcaan told the cop while trying to release the fan from the grip of the law enforcer.
