Sexual Assault Charges Against Michael Darby Have Been Dropped

Real Housewives of Potomac stars Ashley and Michael Darby can breathe again, because the sexual assault charges that were brought up against Michael recently have officially been dropped.

Darby was accused of grabbing and groping a cameraman when they were filming the hit Bravo series.

The alleged victim was Orville Palmer, who insisted that after assaulting him, instead of apologizing, Michael shot him a “flirtatious look.” Feeling threatened, Orville told the man to stop before quickly telling his supervisor. He was then charged with both a felony assault and misdemeanor improper sexual contact.

But the charges have been dropped. “The case was dismissed due to insufficient evidence,” said Ramon Korionoff, Public Affairs Director, Montgomery County State’s Attorney’s Office. “The complaining witness states there were no witness who actually saw the incident, however that he did inform his supervisors immediately after. He provided several contact numbers for his supervisors, however no one ever called us back. We called the complaining witness to update him, however he hasn’t returned our call.”
