According to the police, Mavado turned himself in.

This is not the first that Mavado has had a run in with the police. During September 2006, the police said they received a report that on September 23 of that year Mavado and a group of men had an altercation with another man during a dance on Mannings Hill Road. The man was alleged to have been attacked and injured. The police then went to Cassava Piece, and were in the process of arresting Mavado on a charge of assault occasioning bodily harm, when they were blocked by residents. Later, after the deejay turned himself in, Mavado and a policeman at the station clashed resulting in the deejay incurring a second charge of resisting arrest. During the brawl, the deejay almost lost his fingers when three of his fingers were partially severed and subsequently re-attached by a doctor. He had allegedly been pushed through a glass window by the policeman.

The artist is a member of the Bounty Killer-led Alliance, and is not the first Alliance member to be arrested on gun charges. Last year Alliance selector Foota Hype was arrested charged with illegal possession of firearm and ammunition.
