As noted by an attentive blog reader earlier today in the comments section of our original post, Leftover Salmon singer/keyboardist Bill McKay, who was arrested late last month on accusations that he drugged and assaulted a female acquaintance on New Year's Eve after a gig his band played in Edwards, Colorado, that night, will indeed not be facing any charges. Eagle County District Attorney Mark Hurlbert confirmed with the Denver Post this afternoon that his office has opted not to file any charges, because, as he put it, "We didn't feel we could prove the case beyond a reasonable doubt." Hurlbert added that if any new developments emerge, his office would reassess things.
