Shannon Noll's assault charge dropped

CHARGES against singer Shannon Noll over the alleged assault of a bouncer at the Crazy Horse strip club have been dropped.

Noll did not attend the Adelaide Magistrates Court on Thursday afternoon when his case was thrown out.

The What About Me singer had been charged with one basic count of assault after he was kicked out of the Crazy Horse strip club in Adelaide in January.

Prosecutors had alleged Noll was involved in an early-morning altercation outside Hindley St's Crazy Horse Revue in January.

Eyewitnesses had claimed the singer was "intoxicated and screaming”, saying, "I'm Shannon Noll, let me back in”, as he was removed from the premises by security guards.

Subsequently Noll's promoter told media there was "more to this story than what's been seen”, while the venue denied claims the singer had been king hit by a security guard.

Noll himself appeared to poke fun over the controversy in February, posting to Facebook a photo of himself behind the bars of the Old Mt Gambier Gaol.
