CONTROVERSIAL dancehall Artiste Skeng pleaded not guilty to disorderly conduct and resisting arrest when he appeared in the Kingston and St Andrew Parish Court on Tuesday.

He was facing charges in relation to an alleged incident which occurred at the Norman Manley International Airport (NMIA) in Kingston last month.

The 21-year-old deejay is being represented by high-profile attorney Christopher Townsend.

“We pleaded not guilty because we’re charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. Resisting arrest is only applicable if the offence created is arrestable, or if he was in fact being arrested,” Townsend Said.

According to police reports, Skeng (given name was Kevaun Douglas) was involved in a confrontation with officials at the NMIA at about 1:50 pm in May. During the incident, he was allegedly pepper sprayed by the police.

The entertainer was granted bail in his own surety and is set to return to court on September 8.
