Kelis cleared of criminal charges

Singer is off the hook for bizarre 2007 incident

A Miami judge yesterday (September 12) dismissed charges against Kelis stemming from a bizarre incident in the Floridian city last year.

The singer was accused of disrupting a police operation at a South Beach nightclub by rushing towards undercover authorities and screaming racial profanities.

Authorities posing as prostitutes had been talking to a group of men when Kelis allegedly rushed at them and said one of the men was her husband Nas.

As a result, she was charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest without violence.

However, she is now off the hook as Miami Circuit Judge Antonio Arzola cleared her of the charges and has stopped the case from going any further, reports the Associated Press.
