Charges dropped against 'Survivor: Gabon' castaway Ace Gordon

Misdemeanor charges have reportedly been dropped against a former Survivor: Gabon castaway Ace Gordon regarding his November arrest at a Naples, FL lounge.

Florida Assistant State Attorney James Stewart has signed a "notice of no information," which was filed December 22 in Collier County Court, finding "insufficient evidence to prove the case beyond a reasonable doubt" that the 28-year-old Gordon struck a woman at the Sway Lounge early on the morning of November 16, 2008, according to the Naples Daily News.

The alleged incident occurred at 2:22AM on November 16 when police arrived at the lounge after observing security escorting Gordon out of the building and subsequently arrested and charged the former Survivor castaway with disorderly intoxication, obstruction of an officer and resisting arrest without violence after the lounge's bouncers accused him of striking a woman.

Gordon -- who reportedly said he was "famous" numerous times during the ordeal -- also allegedly resisted arrest while being escorted away by police and reached toward a deputy's face in an aggressive manner.

However, in the days following Gordon's arrest, the lounge's owner came forward and stated that initial reports regarding the incident had been incorrect. While he stated that Gordon had pushed a deputy, he added that that Gordon hadn't struck a woman while in the lounge.

According to the Daily News, Gordon's defense attorney denied that Gordon had ever struck a woman and had demanded surveillance footage to prove it. The charges against Gordon were never formally filed by a prosecutor.

Gordon was the seventh castaway eliminated from Survivor: Gabon, which was filmed in Africa this past summer. His elimination aired on the CBS reality show's October 30 broadcast.
