Dancehall Artist Kemar Highcon Arrested and Charged with Grand Theft Auto in Florida

Dancehall sensation Kemar Highcon, whose real name is Kemar Emilio Woodfine, was recently arrested and charged with Grand Theft Auto in Broward County, Florida. According to his arrest record, the artist was taken into custody by Margate law enforcement officers on May 5, 2023. The circumstances surrounding his arrest remain unknown.


Highcon's mugshot surfaced online on Sunday, revealing his current status. Although no further details were disclosed about the charges against him, Highcon's arrest record indicates that he was booked under statute 812-014-2c6, which pertains to the unlawful possession of someone else's property. He was subsequently released on a $500 bond.


For a Grand Theft to be considered a third-degree felony in Florida, the automobile stolen must be valued between $750 and $20,000. It can result in 5 years imprisonment and a maximum fine of $5,000. Highcon has not yet commented on the incident publicly.


The news of Highcon's arrest has sparked mixed reactions among his fans and the general public. The artist is best known for his 2018 hit single "So Saucy," which earned him a sizable following in the dancehall community. He dropped out of school after pursuing studies in criminal justice at the University of Phoenix in Arizona, and after six years, he finally got his big break with "So Saucy" in 2018 and his follow-up "Talk Bout," which kept his momentum going.


He soon landed sponsorship deals and became a Digicel and Pizza Hut ambassador. Hailing from Portmore in St Catherine, Highcon attended St Jago High School in Spanish Town up to fourth form before migrating to New York City in 2006.
