Top Model’s Elyse Sewell, Shins’ Marty Crandall won’t be charged for domestic violence

The conflict that resulted in a Top Model cycle one contestant and her Shins’ band member ex-boyfriend being arrested and thrown in jail this weekend has resulted in no charges being filed.

“The Sacramento, California, district attorney’s office ruled Tuesday (January 8) that there was insufficient evidence to pursue domestic-violence charges against Shins multi-instrumentalist Marty Crandall or his former girlfriend, Elyse Sewell,” MTV News reports.

In her most recent Livejournal post, Elyse wrote, “The D.A. has rejected the case against me. I am free. I wish the same outcome for Marty and have no intention of pursuing any further legal action. I would not wish entanglement in the widening gyre of the American legal system upon my worst enemy.”

She adds that “[i]t was incredibly naive of me not to realize that my blog entry about this incident would become tabloid fodder. That was not my intention. I consider the small circle of people who frequent this LJ to be a support group; the much larger world of tabloid readers is certainly not. I will never speak of this again, nor malign Marty in this space. And tomorrow this’ll be fishwrap.”
