Jamiroquai frontman Jay Kay’s legal funk has just been junked by U.K. prosecutors.
Assault and criminal damage charges were dropped by the attorneys because they couldn’t compile enough evidence for a case against Kay, according to an Epic Records spokesperson.
The charges stem from an April 14 incident, when Kay was arrested outside of the Attica nightclub in London’s West End for allegedly punching photographer Dennis Gill and breaking his camera, worth about $367. The singer pleaded not guilty to the accusations in October (see “Jamiroquai Singer Pleads Not Guilty To Assault Charges” ).
“I am pleased the charges have been dismissed,” Kay said in a statement. “I always maintained they had no grounds for these allegations and I’m glad sense has prevailed.”
Jamiroquai’s latest album, A Funk Odyssey, the follow-up to 1999’s Synkronized, was released September 11.
