Tommy Lee Sparta is being detained under the current state of public emergency (SOE) in the parish. This means he can be held for 90 days without being charged.

On Wednesday, Tommy Lee Sparta’s management team asked Dancehall fans for their support as they fight for his freedom.

Social media users are being asked to change their display photo to show solidarity for the Uncle Demon deejay.

“We are asking for all supporters to either change their profile pictures on IG/FB and/or post on their feed to show solidarity while Mr. Leroy Junior Russell AKA Tommy Lee Sparta’s legal team focus on his freedom,” an Instagram post uploaded to his account read.

The deejay’s manager, Nicole Taban also issued a statement thanking fans for their continued support and to unite and peacefully condone discrimination against him and other artistes. “On behalf of Tommy Lee Sparta and Boss Lady Muzik team, I would like to thank all supporters for your heartwarming messages. It is time for all of us to unite and peacefully condone discrimination against Tommy Lee Sparta and all artists who are either wrongfully detained, accused of or imprisoned for alleged crimes they never committed” she wrote.

In June 2016, detectives in the Kingston Eastern Division listed Tommy Lee Sparta as a person of interest in relation to a shooting incident on Saunders Avenue in the Kingston 2 region of the Corporate Area.

Back in January 2017 Freeport Police Station asked the deejay to turn himself in for questioning in relation to a shooting in the Flanker community during the Christmas holiday.

In March this year, Tommy Lee Sparta’s six-year-old daughter was shot during an altercation among three men in Flanker. A nine-year-old boy was fatally shot in the incident.
