ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- Mr Travis Osborne aka 'Bumpy' has been accused in the Magistrate's Court of beating his visiting girlfriend, Lalique Lockhart of St Croix, US Virgin Islands (VI), and causing her actual bodily harm, allegedly after she spoke to a man at the Deuces Nightclub on November 14, 2021.

His girlfriend had to seek medical attention at the Dr D. Orlando Smith Hospital for her injuries.

The conversation at the club, between Lockhart the Virtual Complainant (VC) and a man, was about money, the court heard.

The man reportedly approached the VC and asked her for $10 but she denied it to him.

During the course of several hours that followed that conversation, the accused (Osbourne) fought several times with the VC and destroyed her weave, handbag, and even Sea View Hotel’s fixtures and door, where she was staying during her visit.

He was charged with assault causing actual bodily harm and five counts of criminal damage.


The allegations were read in court by Crown Counsel Patrice Hickson, who said the accused told the VC that he was ending their relationship after he witnessed the conversation between her and the other man in the club.

Sometime afterwards, the VC saw the accused fighting with the same man she spoke with earlier and she went to part the men when she saw the other man was armed with a machete.

Notwithstanding her intervention which led to the de-escalation of the fight between the men, Osbourne turned on her in the car and started beating her on her head with an unknown object and she started bleeding from a head wound.

They left the club’s parking lot and when they arrived on Main Street, he ordered her to exit the car and she did, while she was only wearing her underwear.

The assault continued when they arrived back in the hotel room and it lasted for several hours, and during that time, they argued over the damaged steering and other parts of the car they drove, which belonged to a relative of Osbourne.

Phone smashed

That time, he allegedly smashed her business phone and caused damage to the hotel room.

The pair eventually had sexual intercourse and went to bed but around 9 am, the VC felt the bed sheet she was using being pulled by Osbourne.

He was again arguing with her over the damages to the vehicle and who was going to fix it.

They got into another fight and the VC tried calling for help and she managed to escape and found a hotel worker.

The hotel worker called the manager and the manager called the police after the VC said she wanted their intervention.

She had to be taken to the hospital for medical attention as at that point she was badly beaten and had swollen body parts.

Osbourne was eventually arrested and charged.

CCTV footage of the hotel was also reviewed.

During his interview with the police, he said it was the VC who instigated the fight and destroyed the vehicle’s interior.

Bail granted

Osbourne, a local contractor, was granted $25,000 signed bail and was asked to stay away from the VC and report every Friday to the West End Police Station between 6:00 am and 12:00 pm.

He did not have a lawyer present and he was not made to enter pleas.

He is scheduled to return to court on February 1, 2022.

He damaged her fake hair that grew out of someone else's head? Oh nooooo, the horrors of it all. Bumpy Bumpy Bumpy, what in the world is wrong with you. You sure have a funny way of breaking up with her. SMDH.

        I agree, with his actions i lost all respect for him as a man. He's a entertainer trying his best to act tough. He also wants to be respected but goes about trying to receive it the wrong way. He's a youth that got potential and i would like to see him do well but if he continue at the pace he going, he'll get tested on misrepresentation.

    Hope the territory would use this case to show women that they are valued and protected. Domestic violence is no joke. Life in prison for him just like she is in a life time prison of fear and trembling.

    Sad that we are joking about domestic violence. We can see there is something mentally wrong with both of them. Very dangerous, and with that much anger he could have killed her. She, on the other hand, needs to get away from him and take care of herself.

    Let me tell you how the criminal justice system is messed up.
    A report is made to the police regarding these 2 love birds
    At Court, They will ask him if he is still with her- he will say yes! This is the time when he demonstrates that they are so in love and need each other.
    And then the Crown will propose he be sent to Partnership for Peace with Dr Wright for counseling



    The end.

    I saw these two the day before and they looked real cute together, however, within minutes they had a little dispute where he asked her to give him back an item, he said she took. He was a little pissed off and said he was going to call police. Then he broke it off with her and walked away. He told her, if you don't give it back, we done. However, she ran after him. Now, I'm reading this. Wow.
