The deejay Bounty Killa, real name Rodney Price, will face the courts today to answer charges of assault with occasioning bodily harm. He was arrested on warrant following an incident that was reported to have occurred on March 25. Price's girlfriend decided to end their three-year relationship, police said.
It is alleged that he responded by refusing to let her go and attacked her. The woman reported the matter to the police, an investigation was launched and a warrant was subsequently issued for his arrest.
Price was also arrested by police in June 2006 and charged with assaulting the mother of his child. The "complainant was allegedly punched in the face several times, dragged some distance away and her head slammed into a wall".
Bounty Killer was one of five entertainers whose visas were revoked by the United States Embassy last week. No reason was given for the revocation.
