Rolling Stone

Assault charges against former Cro-Mags bassist and founding member Harley Flanagan regarding a July altercation with the band have been dropped, DNAinfo.com reports. Flanagan was accused of stabbing Cro-Mag members William Berario and Michael Couls with a hunting knife and biting Berario on the cheek at New York's CBGB Festival, forcing a show to be canceled. He faced charges of second-degree assault and criminal possession of a weapon. Prosecutors dismissed the case today, citing insufficient evidence to prove the charges beyond a reasonable doubt.
