The grandson of late Reggae icon Bob Marley, Matthew Prendergast, has been freed of gun and assault charges.

Prendergast was freed in the Gun Court yesterday after the Crown offered no further evidence.

He was arrested and charged in 2014 with illegal possession of a firearm and common assault.

Prendergast, who was represented by attorney Tom Tavares Finson and Donahue Martin Jr, was on bail.

The charges stemmed from an incident where Prendergast allegedly pointed a firearm at a security guard at the Bob Marley Museum in St Andrew.
