Dancehall entertainer David 'Mavado' Brooks was this morning freed of an assault charge in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court.




When the case was called up the court was told that the matter was settled at mediation and as a result the complaint was withdrawn.



The magistrate said since there was no longer a case before the court the entertainer was free to go.



Brooks was represented by Attorney-at-Law Peter Champagnie.



The entertainer was arrested and charged in 2011 for assaulting an off-duty policeman.



In celebration, the entertainer took to his twitter page in celebration saying "Charges against me dismissed in court today, to God be the glory" ... "No evidence offered by prosecution, case dismissed. Mr Brooks you're free to go" #Justice".
