KINGSTON, Jamaica, June 8, 2017 (CMC) – More than three years after he was alleged to have pulled a firearm on a security guard, Mathew Pendergast, the grandson of reggae legend, Bob Marley, has been freed in the Gun Court.
Prendergast, 25, based in Miami, had been charged with illegal possession of a firearm and assault at common law on April 5, 2014.
Prendergast is alleged to have pointed a gun at the security guard at the Bob Marley Museum. A firearm has not been recovered.
Attorney, Tom Tavares Finson, who filed a no case submission on behalf of his client, told the Court that it was costly for Pendergast to continue travelling to court.
Prendergast is the son of Sharon Marley and FIFA referee instructor, Peter Prendergast.
