Popcaan appeared before Chief Magistrate Joanne Walsh yesterday and pleaded guilty to the offences of battery of a police officer and obstructing a police officer.
The magistrate ordered him to pay $1,000 for each offence to avoid six months’ jail time.
After sentencing, the dancehall star apologised to the police officer in question, who has been identified as Corporal Randy Francis, and told the magistrate “I love you”.
Popcaan was represented by Jermaine Rhudd, Lawrence Daniels and Michael Archibald.
No deportation order was made and the singer is free to return to the twin island state.
Reports indicate the man has already paid the fine and is expected to leave the country today for Tortola and then St Lucia.
