Ron Jeremy Busted But Not Charged

OUCH: Bachelor blames stripper for honeymoon ohfer.

MAY 17--Citing a lack of evidence, Michigan prosecutors this morning declined to pursue a felony sex charge lodged yesterday against porn star Ron Jeremy, The Smoking Gun has learned.

The 50-year-old Jeremy (real name: Ronald Jeremy Hyatt) was arrested Friday by Ypsilanti police and held on a criminal sexual conduct charge. Jeremy's arrest was precipitated by a complaint lodged by a 20-year-old Ann Arbor woman, who told cops that Jeremy had assaulted her early Friday morning at a local strip club, Déjà Vu. Jeremy made a personal appearance Thursday night at the club, whose web site breathlessly advertises "totally nude couch dances and topless tableside dances!"

Cops arrested Jeremy at an Ann Arbor hotel Friday morning and booked him into the Washtenaw County jail. After spending the evening in the lockup, Jeremy appeared this morning for a hearing to determine whether bond would be set for his release. It was at that presentment, held at the jail, when prosecutors announced that they were dropping the felony charge because there "wasn't enough evidence to prove that the sexual acts were nonconsensual," said Sgt. John Minzey of the Ypsilanti P.D..

Jeremy was then released from custody at about 11 AM. His brief imprisonment surely came as a disappointment to Hedgehog fans in Ohio, where he was scheduled to appear last night at Toledo's Déjà Vu club.

it never ceases to amaze me how this degenerate continues getting publicity. Hope he's been tested for STDs and AIDS. anybody who puts his johnson in as many places as he has his should be declared a public health hazard.
