Charges against Ace Gordon dropped due to “insufficient evidence”; Bianca Golden won’t be prosecuted

Two reality stars arrested with crimes last year won’t be prosecuted.

In August, Top Model 9 contestant Bianca Golden was arrested after an airport brawl that included Hairspray star Nikki Blonsky. Now, “the cases against Nikki Blonsky and Bianca Golden have been dropped. The only case that is still proceeding is against [Blonsky's] father,” a police sergeant told E! News. E! reports that Carl Blonsky “still faces charges of assault and inflicting grievous bodily harm for his role in the Providenciales International Airport brawl.”

Survivor Gabon contestant Ace Gordon won’t be prosecuted after his mid-November arrest for disorderly intoxication and other misdemeanors following an incident at a bar, the details of which were disputed by the bar’s owner.

On the Monday before Christmas, a Florida assistant state attorney signed and filed a “notice of no information” which said there was “insufficient evidence to prove the case beyond a reasonable doubt.”

The Naples Daily News reports that “deputies were unable to find the woman who allegedly was hit and she didn’t press charges for battery,” while “Gordon’s defense attorney, Michelle Hill, denied he hit a woman and had demanded video surveillance footage to prove it. She also said Gordon denied telling deputies he was famous and pointed out it wasn’t in his arrest reports.”
