Dancehall artiste Louis 'Dexta Daps' Grandison, who allegedly got into an altercation with the police over a parking violation, had his bail extended when he appeared in the Montego Bay Resident Magistrate’s Court yesterday.

His co-accused, Essan Richards, also had his bail extended.

Both men, who are being represented by attorney-at-law Peter Champagnie, are charged with assault occasioning bodily harm, obstructing the police, using indecent language and resisting arrest.

Richards is facing the additional charge of illegal possession of ganja.

During the hearing yesterday, the court was told that a medical certificate was on the prosecution’s case-file, but that a statement from the police was outstanding.

The matter was set for mention on June 9.

Reports are that, on April 27, a member of Grandison’s entourage parked his car in a restricted area at the Sangster International Airport and was accosted by the police.

An argument ensued between the parties, and subsequently escalated into a physical altercation.
