DJ Nez Charged With Attempted Murder, Remanded To Prison


Arnold “DJ Nez” Graham was charged with attempted murder for trying to run over a woman with a vehicle.

Magistrate Ngaio Emanuel remanded the accused when he made his first appearance in All Saints Magistrates Court this morning.

Magistrates do not have the jurisdiction to grant bail for certain serious offences including attempted murder.

He is due back in court in September.

  1. I must admit that this story came as a real shock to me. I know DJ Nez and he is undoubtedly one of the kindest and nicest person that I have come to know. If true, this is not the normal Nez that I have known and it must have been very unusual circumstances that led to this. Nonetheless, it is a very serious charge and I offer my prayers and full support to you my dear friend.

    • You do not “know” Nez. The Most High alone knows the human heart and He describes it as “desperately wicked” plain and simple. I hope for his sake that he is innocent, but a recording being circulated on social media paints a different picture of the man you claim to “know” as kind and nice.

      • Graphics, the best of us make mistakes and it in no way means we are not nice. I am not casting guilt or otherwise on Nez. I do not know the facts. I know him to be a nice and caring person…that is all I said! In all of my association with him, I have never seen a violent side and most persons who knows Nez would attest to this.

        • And I should add by no means am I saying he is guilty, I am saying based on my observations of him, I wouldnt put it past him. The other thing to consider is the fact that he probably had no reason to show you his violent side but like all of us he has a violent side and he seems to show it more at events. Idk if some of u might say its alcohol or his friends influencing him but he has a warish side.

      • @Audley. I’m not saying he is guilty or innocent. The point I was trying to make is that none of us can truly know another 100% Even the very people we live with don’t know our deepest thoughts. I can only surmise that you do not live with him because as the saying goes “see me and live with me a two different things”

        I don’t even “swear” for myself much less people.


        Two of a kind. Destructive influences.

        The way character is sometimes ‘…Graphically portrayed,’ it often paints a ‘…black picture’ and likened to wild fire, ‘…Social Media’ circulates it.

        Then perceptions are warped by its corruptible influence on the mind, as it makes it rounds.

        In the instant case, until the facts are known, ‘…Judge Not’ by these destructive influences.

    • After you argued with me on the Cannabis Column I thought you we just misinformed but now I see you are just gullible. You know how much time Nez and he thugz want to start fights at parties and outings? As a matter of fact, I went to grammar school when he had a short stint as the music teacher…. ignorant and stupid like a pitbull. So news like this doesn’t shock me, wonder how he manage to avoid getting into trouble so long. Nez probably put on his soft voice and used the words “thank you” and you believe he is nice.

      • Mt dear friend “I Like to Vape or eat it (Cannabis)”, I stand by what ever I write and that is why I never use any pseudonyms or false names. I use my real name all the time. My Cannabis columns …….I am glad you liked them and I am sure you learned a lot from them. You obviously have a personal vendetta against Nez and it’s your right. I have no such against anyone.

        • I don’t. I made 2 post and the administrator only approved one. I am very observant, especially, when I am under influence of cannabis. I like to watch how ppl interact because I am very interested in human behavior and sociology, I actually minored in it in university. So like I said in my other post it could be the alcohol at events or he is being influenced by ppl around him, I have seen him get really aggressive at outings. You might not see it because I am sure when you interacted with he had no reason to be upset. And I also mentioned I am not saying he is guilty but I wouldnt put it pass him because I have seen his war-ish side. But also you are quick to assume because I simply stated my observations of him before, how did that translate to me having a personal vandetta against him? I have never spoken a word to him, I have just observed his interactions with other people at different times. I took a little jab at you in my first comment strictly out of fun but I have nothing against Nez, as a matter of fact I also believe some woman are malicious so more than likely the woman in this story isn’t innocent. But Mr. Phillip I look forward to future cannabis debates. Enjoy your evening.

          • I will engage you further in some future Cannabis debate my friend. I am now preparing another commentary which I am sure you will find interesting.. Keep your head up and enjoy the day!

  2. Hope it’s not that Vybz Kartel music that influencing him. Jazz and opera have a much better effect.

  3. Genesis 8:21 King James Version (KJV)
    21. And the Lord smelled a sweet savour; and the Lord said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man’s sake; for the imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done.
    Jeremiah 17:9 King James Version (KJV)
    9. The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?
    Matthew 15:19 King James Version (KJV)
    19. For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornication, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:
    Jeremiah 10:23 King James Version (KJV)
    23. O Lord, I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps.
    James 1:23-25 King James Version (KJV)
    23. For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:
    24. For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was.
    25. But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.
    Romans 13:10 King James Version (KJV)
    10. Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.
    1 Peter 4:8 King James Version (KJV)
    8. And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins.


      This time, you are as bright as the ‘…Rising Sun.’ and shines like an ‘…Evening Star’ on a dark night.
      One point off- 99%.

      Never allow ‘…Duncy Batness’ to get in the way.

      The word to go with this vernacular is ‘…tory.’ Not ‘…story.’

  4. D. Gisele Isaac was right: MAN CAN’T TEK KNUCKLE!!

    “If I can’t have you no one else can”


    This is a charge that may not see the ‘…Light of Day.’

    From these two perspectives,

    (i) ‘…Professional; and

    (ii) …Evidential.’

    Investigators know that an incident that involves two lovers only, one would,

    (a) ‘…Make an allegation; and

    (b) …The other would deny.’

    In the instant case, where it is alleged that the driver (boyfriend), attempted to run over the victim (girlfriend), in the absence of eye-witnesses, the circumstantial evidence shall be overwhelming.

    Example, in attempting to avoid the vehicle, victim fell and sustained some form of injuries.

    Stronger still, if victim was struck by the vehicle, no matter how minor, there would also be some form of injuries.

    These would have been visible to the investigator and an attending medical practitioner. These, undoubtedly, should show a ‘…preponderance of evidence and a clear intent to cause harm or kill.’

    If the victim escaped from being hit and sustained ‘…no falling injuries,’ the simple minor or summary charge would be ‘…Assault.’

    Going on the victim’s word, as against the accused, without a ‘…scintilla of evidence,’ often results in travesty- ‘…False Arrest or Malicious Prosecution.’

    Really do not know what available evidence there is.

    Do know that without ‘more,’ this ‘…Attempted Murder Charge,’ will be ‘…gashed, either in the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) or at ‘…Committal Proceedings at the Magistrate’s Court.’

  6. I have known Arnold since we were kids. I do not know what transpired here so I cannot judge that. But what I can say is, he was raised in church and I am not sure why he made the devil take over his soul.. I have seen first hand the anger that runs deep in his soul. I have seen the abuse and I know exactly what he is capable of. He can be very loving but he is on the other hand, very demonic.
    I am not saying that he committed this crime but I am saying that he is capable of it.

    • Apparently he was born, bred, and raised in the Salvation Army with his father who is a preacher. Maybe it’s time for the Prodigal Son to return home. God has a way of using circumstances to reach our hearts. It is quite likely that his parents and others have been praying for him all these years and this situation will cause him to reflect on his spiritual upbringing. This is not the end, it’s chapter II.

  7. Well hope he wins this case, well its easy just pay someone.

  8. He is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Some of u here swearing for him don’t shat. Wonder if some of u know his releationship with his “alleged” victim. There more to the malt that what is in the pissal.

  9. I pray his time on remanded that he would reflex on the decision he made that put him in that place. Why there he can find the Biblical principle he was brought on, repent and turn back to God. The churches need good musician.
