Charges dropped in alleged kidnapping over Shaq

August 10, 2011 12:00:00 AM PDT
The case has been dropped against seven gang members accused of kidnapping a music producer who claimed to have a sex tape of Shaquille O'Neal.

Robert Toss testified that in 2008, following a business dispute with O'Neal, he falsely told him he had a sex tape.

Ross claimed that two weeks later, he was attacked by gang members who mentioned O'Neal.

O'Neal denied involvement and wasn't charged.

Prosecutors believe Ross was attacked, but his credibility as a witness was undermined by some of his own testimony and behavior.
