Don Lemon Accuser Recants Claims and Drops Lawsuit

Three years ago CNN anchor Don Lemon was accused of groping Dustin Hice during a Hampton's bar crawl, triggering a multi million dollar lawsuit for Assault, Libel, and Slander [click here if you missed that]. 

This week the lawsuit was dropped after Hice recanted his claims...

According to reports Hice filed to drop his lawsuit this week, just days before the jury trial was set to begin, claiming he 'misremembered' the events on the night in question.

In actuality Hice's case fell apart after it was discovered that his main witness had been offered money for a favorable testimony and the other two testified that Hice had been the aggressor that night, following Lemon from bar to bar, and had even taken a selfie on Lemon's property. 

Hice had previously been ordered to pay Lemon $77,000 for his legal fees after being sanctioned for bad behavior.
