“Hello everyone, I’d like to take the opportunitu to confirm that after a detailed investigation by my attorneys and the Mecklenburg County District Attorny’s Office all charges against me have been dismissed,” he wrote.

“In the State’s own words, after obtaining all the facts, ‘[t]he evidence leaves the State without a reasonable chance of success at trial[,]‘ and ‘the State is unable to prove beyond reasonable doubt that [Hayes] committed the offense[s.]‘ Video evidence obtained by my attorneys, and presented to the State, clearly showed that I was not the aggressor but, instead, was assaulted without provocation by the purported victim,” he continued.

Hayes added, “I look forward to putting this unfortunate situation behind me. Thankful for all those who’ve been there for me.”

According to TMZ, Hayes was arrested after he allegedly brutally assaulted William Markolf on Monday (July 26) before stealing his $1,200 cellphone. The victim is said to have suffered serious injuries, including brain damage.

William also reportedly sustained a broken left orbital bone, bruised ribs, head trauma, and hearing loss.

Hayes was released from the county jail after posting the $17,500 bond.
