Loon Assault Charges Dropped

Bad Boy Records artist

Loon has been cleared of felony assault charges after a Beverly Hills Superior

Court judge dismissed the case stating there was a lack of evidence to go to trial.

Loon and two associates,

William Reyes and Teon Tanqueray were charged with felony assault after a bouncer

was stabbed at a House of Blues party.

Reports stated

that neither the bouncer who was assaulted nor the eyewitness to the stabbing

could determine which of the three men committed the stabbing.

"I just want

to thank God first and foremost," Loon told the Associated Press. "My

prayers were answered, I’m very grateful. The trial was very exhausting and

I’m looking forward to getting back to work."

Initially, the

incident occurred in February at the House of Blues in Los Angeles, California,

during a release party for Lil Jon & The Eastside Boyz’s new adult DVD series.

At the time, authorites

said that a group of men attempted to forcefully enter the club and in the ensuing

fracas, the security guard was stabbed in the upper torso.
