Assault Charges Dropped Against Luther Campbell

Former 2 Live Crew frontman Luther Campbell has been cleared of the assault charges that were filed against him last month as the result of a nightclub brawl in Miami Beach, Florida.

Dade County prosecutors decided to withdraw the aggravated battery charge against Campbell after witnesses to the incident offered conflicting views as to what they had seen, according to the Associated Press.

Campbell was taken into custody on July 5 after he allegedly struck one of the bar patrons in the face with a whiskey bottle — supposedly because the man was blocking his view of the stage (see “2 Live Crew’s Campbell Arrested” ).
