Quaye Escapes Conviction After Judge Throws Out Assault Case

British reggae star FINLEY QUAYE's assault case has been thrown out of court after officials at Britain's Crown Prosecution Service forgot to request an adjournment.
The DICe hitmaker was arrested last July (09) after allegedly lashing out at his tour manager and biting him on the arm after he was prevented from retrieving a laptop computer from his dressing room.
Quaye was charged with assault and police reportedly found cannabis on the singer when he was apprehended at London's Roundhouse venue.
He was expected to stand trial in Highbury Corner magistrates court last week (08Apr10), but a judge dismissed the case because officials at the CPS did not apply for an adjournment after two witnesses told them they could not attend court this month (Apr10).
Deputy District Judge Mallins slammed the CPS' blunder as "a disgraceful piece of inefficiency".
Quaye admitted possessing cannabis and missing a bail hearing and was fined $950 (£650) with $150 (£100) costs, according to Britain's Daily Mail newspaper.
