A judge has ordered the police to either release top deejay Alkaline by 6PM or charge him for a crime.
Alkaline’s attorney, Peter Champagnie, made an application in court this morning for the deejay to be released.
The police objected to the application for release stating that Alkaline was not cooperating. According to Police Superintendent Meverald Smith, who appeared on behalf of the police, they are trying to decide whether or not to charge Alkaline but are getting nowhere because of Alkaline’s refusal to answer their questions.
Smith said that investigators asked the entertainer 100 questions and he responded only by saying “I am innocent of these charges”.
The entertainer, whose given name is Earlan Bartley, has been in police custody since Thursday after he turned himself into investigators who are probing a murder case that took place on January 13th.
