The assault charges against Shannon Noll have been dropped.
Shannon Noll was due to face court today over an incident at an Adelaide strip club last month, but never rocked up.
Nollsie, who is currently touring in Queensland, was scheduled to face the Adelaide Magistrates Court today over one charge of assault against a bouncer he allegedly lashed out at when he was kicked out of the Crazy Horse Revue strip club in January.
As News Corp Australia reports, Noll’s defence counsel Andrew Ey asked the court to excuse his client’s absence today, because he “resides and works interstate”.
Ey asked that the matter be adjourned to a pre-trial conference, but Magistrate Rodney Oates considered issuing an arrest warrant “to lie on the file”, which would mean that if Noll misses his next court appearance, there would be a warrant for his arrest.
In the end, Mr Oates agreed to grant Noll and his legal time a pre-trial conference.
“I will excuse his attendance here today but he needs to be here next time,” he said. The matter has now been adjourned until April.
Noll was arrested outside the Crazy Horse Revue in the early hours of Sunday, 15th January, after being removed from the venue for allegedly becoming aggressive inside the club.
Noll’s management has released a statement explaining why he did not attend:
