Don Lemon’s accuser drops sexual assault claim and drops trial

A man who accused Don Lemon of sexual assault in a bar in 2018 has retracted his complaint, saying his memories have changed since he sued the CNN personality.

“After much self-reflection and a deep dive into my memory, I have come to realize that my memories of the events that transpired on the night in question when I first met CNN anchor Don Lemon , were not who I thought they were when I filed this lawsuit,” Dustin Hice said through his attorneys in a statement reported Monday by TheWrap. .”

Hice alleged that Lemon rubbed his genitals before “shoving” his fingers into Hice’s mustache while lustfully asking if Hice preferred men or women. Hice claimed to have been traumatized by the incident.

Lemon’s attorney, Caroline Polisi, on Monday called the lawsuit “a gross money grab from its inception”, Mediaite reported.

Polisi also took aim at some media outlets for “jumping to conclusions” and “unethical”, adding that Lemon as a gay black man has been a constant target of assassination.
