The case against a man accused of threatening Sir Elton John’’s life has been dismissed.
Neal Horsley was arrested in March and his trial was due to start on Monday, but the court appointment was cancelled, according to the Daily Mirror.
Fulton County Superior Court Judge Kimberly Esmond Adams reportedly dismissed the case against Horsley because his actions did not warrant criminal charges.
The charges made against him include making terrorist threats, criminal defamation and using the Internet to circulate threats, reports the Daily Star.
Previously, John has suggested Jesus Christ was gay in an interview with Parade magazine interview in February, which angered the accused.
Reacting to John’s remarks, he wrote an angry online response, entitled ‘Why Elton John Must Die’.
