Shins star Marty Crandall and his girlfriend will not face charges following an argument in a Sacramento hotel, local police have confirmed.
Crandall and his girlfriend, Elyse Sewell, star of US television fashion show America's Next Top Model, were both taken into custody last Friday (January 4th) after police were called to the hotel by staff.
Paul Durenberger, supervisor for the domestic violence unit at Sacramento County district attorney's office, told Oregon live that following analysis of police reports “there was no way the D.A. could prove a charge against either one of them."
News of the couples arrest first emerged after Sewell posted a picture of a bruised arm on her online journal, claiming it showed injuries she sustained in the incident.
In a new post, Sewell says that it was not her intention for the blog entry, which was locked pending the outcome of the legal investigation, to “become tabloid fodder.”
“I will never speak of this again, nor malign Marty in this space. And tomorrow this'll be fishwrap,” she adds.
Crandall has yet to make any comment about the outcome of the investigation.
