KADEEM Baker, the girlfriend of dancehall deejay, Bounty Killer, was yesterday charged with public mischief, when the two appeared in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court yesterday.
Bounty, whose real name is Rodney Basil Pryce, was granted bail in the sum of $200,000, after spending close to two weeks in jail. He had been charged with assault after he allegedly beat Baker, his girlfriend of three years. The police also reported that Pryce called the complainant in their presence while he was being processed and threatened her life.
However, since Bounty's first court appearance last week, Baker, who is a model, had asked that the charges be dropped as she and Bounty wanted to get on with their life together. Her lawyer yesterday requested mediation as an alternative, after which the Resident Magistrate, ordered that Baker be charged with creating public mischief.
