"He was abducted at gunpoint by men in masks and taken to the Half-Way-Tree Police Station where it turned out that the men were police officers," said Smith. "Some time ago they had accused him of causing trouble in Montego Bay. The man has since moved and they are still accusing him of things that happen in the parish. I want to know who down there wants him and I'm going to speak with a judge to set up a hearing application for his release. They moved him like a thief in the night."

This is not the first time Tommy Lee Sparta has featured on the cops's radar.

He, along with three others, were charged jointly in February 2014 with suspected breaches of the Law Reform (Fraudulent Transaction) (Special Provisions) Act, 2013. The trial was scheduled to begin last October.

In June 2017, he was questioned and subsequently released by members of the Elleston Road Police Station about a shooting in the division. In January that same year, former head of the St James Police division, Senior Superintendent Marlon Nesbeth, listed the artiste as a person of interest in relation to crime in sections of Flanker in St James.

A former member of Vybz Kartel's Portmore Empire, Tommy Lee Sparta is known for songs including Grim Rim Rave, Holding Out the Pressure, Happy Life, Shook, Some Bwoy, Buss A Blank and We Want Paper.
