BREAKING NEWS!!! Dancehall Superstar VYBZ KARTEL Breaks Out Of Prison . . . Kills One Prison Guard In His DEATH DEFYING ESCAPE!!! (Details)
The street dudes in Jamaica are SERIOUS . . . and that goes ESPECIALLY for Dancehall superstar Vybz Kartel.
You see, Vybz was arrested and charged with MURDERING two people, and was being held in a Jamaican MAXIMUM SECURITY PRISON - that was .. . until last night.
MTV News confirmed that last night - he ESCAPED from prison.
The Dancehall artist started a riot at the Horizon Adult Remand Centre and has fled in Jamaica's biggest prison escape in history. Vybz - real name Adidja Palmer - managed to take control of the prison after holding an officer at gunpoint.
As a result, a prison officer died of a heart attack and 12 others were injured - two were shot with guns that had been smuggled into the prison. Shortly after 1am, Vybz and other jailmates stole clothes and car keys from prison guards and created stories to help get past other officers.
At approximately 1:45am, the convicts made their way to a pickup truck outside the prison which helped them to escape.
EDITOR'S UPDATE: Jamaican Authorities are REFUSING to confirm or deny whether Vybz is in custody. Assistant Commissioner of Police Les Green told the Jamaica Observer early this morning that he had no knowledge of the reported jail break.
