The aggravated assault with a deadly weapon charge was dismissed and Crew is currently on probation through Feb. 2024., according to court records.

Court records show the DWI charge was dismissed on June 11 -- just one day before Crew allegedly shot eight people at REBAR in the 8000 block of Broadway.

Five women and three men, ages 23 to 41, who were wounded in the shooting are all expected to recover from their injuries.

Other previous charges for Crew include an aggravated assault with a deadly weapon charge and an assault bodily injury-married charge from a Dec. 15, 2016, incident. Those charges were also dismissed, one in February and the other in March of 2019.
