Machel Montano Quizzed Over Club Zen Altercation

Machel Montano and fellow band mates Benjai and Kernel Roberts as well as radio personality Shall Mrshall are to be questioned by Belmont police following an incident outside Club Zen yesterday morning which left a patron with injuries.

Police said around 2 a.m, Russell Pollonaise, 24, and several friends were liming at the club when one of Pollonaise's friends spilled a drink on a woman with whom soca artiste Machel Montano was dancing. It is alleged that there was an altercation following which Zen's security officers ordered Pollonaise and his friend out of the club. Belmont police said Montano, Marshal, Benjai and Roberts followed the men outside the club where the argument continued.

It is alleged that Pollonaise's head was slammed against the fender of a white station wagon parked outside the popular nightspot. Pollonaise was taken to the Port of Spain General Hospital, where he was listed in stable condition yesterday.

Meantime, Machel Montano's mother and manager, Elizabeth Montano, yesterday defined the accusations levelled against her son and those who were with him at Club Zen on Wednesday night as ludicrous. She said however that her son is traumatised by the incident and is considering leaving the country for good.

Mrs. Montano said that only one side of the story was being told when the incident was broadcast on radio yesterday. She also added that her son said that he was not treated in this manner whenever he is abroad and was therefore considering migrating.
