*At the BuJu Banton drug trial on Wednesday in Tampa, Florida things got real interesting as the prosecution presented hard evidence of the reggae star making a drug transaction with an undercover cop.
Banton was observed bobbing his head while the court watched video footage of the deal, as he tasted cocaine from a knife.
Banton, whose real name is Mark Anthony Myrie, was comforted by his lawyer after hearing recordings of his conversations with government informant Alexander Johnson, discussing drug deals and even diamond smuggling from Africa to Europe.
The Jamaica Observer reports that as tapes were being played, one woman could be seen clutching her head and covering her ears.
Additionally, Banton’s associates, Ian Thomas and James Mack, agreed to testify against him. He faces life in prison or millions of dollars in fines.
