PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Prosecutors have dropped sexual battery charges against one of three men arrested in April in connection with an alleged gang rape behind a waterfront Panama City Beach night club.

The Panama City News Herald reports that charges against 22-year-old George Davon Kennedy Jr., a student at Middle Tennessee State University, were dropped because prosecutors did not have sufficient evidence to prove their case against him.

Two other men, Delonte Martistee of Bainbridge, Georiga, and Ryan Calhoun, still face felony assault battery charges. continue to face felony charges of sexual battery by multiple perpetrators.

A hearing in the case is scheduled for February 18.

Investigators charged the three men after a video surfaced of them appearing to have sex with an incapacitated woman on a beach crowded with rowdy spring breakers.
