A judge has thrown out the case against seven gang members accused of kidnapping in order to retrieve a sex tape involving Shaquille O'Neal.
You could say it was a slam dunk ... or something.
Robert Ross, the alleged victim, claimed he had a sex tape showing Shaq with multiple women while he was still married to Shaunie O'Neal.
Ross claimed seven gang members kidnapped him at the direction of Shaq and tried to beat him into submission so he would cough up the sex video.
Today in court, in the middle of the preliminary hearing, prosecutors shocked the courtroom when they stated they no longer had confidence in Ross.
The fact that he admitted lying about the sex tape didn't help.
Based on testimony and his actions outside of court, the D.A. lost confidence it could make a case. Lawyers for the defendants filed for a dismissal.
That's exactly what the judge did. Score one for the Legal Diesel. The Shaq sex tape saga has been put to rest ... at least for the time being.
