Arrest warrant out for ex-soca king

Social Share

ST GEORGE’S – A magistrate has issued a warrant of arrest for former Soca Monarch Sheldon Douglas after he failed to appear in court to answer charges of beating a judge in the recently held Carnival celebrations.
Douglas, who had earlier been released on EC$3 000 (BDS$2 222) bail last month, failed to appear at the Grenville Magistrates’ Court on Monday. The case has since been adjourned to December 2.
Douglas, 34, has been charged with assaulting veteran calypso judge Swinton Lambert, 57, following the National Calypso semi-finals in the eastern town of Grenville in July.
Douglas placed third in both the National Calypso Monarch competition and the National Power Soca Monarch competition this year. (CMC)
