Yesterday afternoon, a bunch of pretty crazy stories started circling around the Internet concerning currently incarcerated dancehall superstar Vybz Kartel.According to a bunch of stories, Vybz escaped from a Jamaican prison, where is currently being held on murder charges, after smuggling in guns, injuring a bunch of guards, and joining up with an army of inmates trying to escape. The whole thing reads like an episode of Prison Break.
The only problem? Jamaican police are denying the story, saying that Vybz is still locked up, and there was no riot. Jamaica Observer confirmed that there was no riot, and basically the whole thing was just an Internet rumor run amok. Vybz is facing two murder charges, conspiracy to commit murders, illegal possession of a firearm, and illegal possession of ganja. [DS]
