Gene Simmons No Longer Facing Assault Case

May 28, 2010 (3:29 am) GMT
Prosecutors could not find enough evidence to sue the KISS member who was accused by a couple of assaulting them during a shopping trip.

Prosecutors in Los Angeles have dropped an assault case against star citing lack of evidence, after a couple alleged the rocker attacked them on a shopping trip last year.

Nathan Marlowe and his wife Cynthia Manzo claim Simmons assaulted them and took their video camera after he spotted them filming him at L.A. mall The Grove in December. The couple subsequently filed for a restraining order against the rocker, but that request was thrown out by a judge, and they are currently pursuing a civil claim through the courts, suing the bass player for assault, battery and infliction of emotional distress.

It has now been revealed Simmons won't face criminal charges over the alleged incident as officials in L.A. have concluded there is not enough evidence to prosecute, according to TMZ.com. The civil case continues.
