PORTLAND, Maine (CelebrityAccess) A domestic violence charge has been dropped against Alex Gray, founder of Bangor, Maine, promotion company Waterfront Concerts.
Gray had been embroiled in a criminal case after being accused of assaulting then-girlfriend Erica Cole. He originally pleaded guilty to an assault charge but withdrew his plea Monday in Portland, Maine, as part of a plea deal, according to the Bangor Daily News.
Gray has promoted popular concert series in both cities, recently partnering with Live Nation. Last September, before his guilty plea, Gray signed a 10-year contract with Bangor to produce shows at the city’s Darling’;s Waterfront Pavilion. Portland opted instead, in April, to sign only with Live Nation but not before originally signing a one-year contract with Gray for shows at the Maine State Pier. That decision came in February and Cole published an open letter regarding her alleged domestic abuse soon afterward.
Gray pleaded guilty and told the court he accepted responsibility for an incident that saw Cole briefly hospitalized in March 2017 but maintained he never assaulted her, according to the Daily News. He now has a clean record but Waterfront Concerts may still exit its activity in Portland, the newspaper said.
