The judge in former Auburn wing Shaq Johnson's bizarre dance-battle case issued a nolle prosequi ruling on Monday morning, which means that the court will not pursue charges against him.

A nolle prosequi can be entered by a judge or a prosecutor for a number of reasons ranging from tainted evidence or the belief that there's not sufficient evidence to convict, but it doesn't mean that Johnson was found innocent, nor does it mean he was acquitted of the charges against him. 

In September, Johnson was charged with felony malicious wounding after he allegedly punched a man in the face, knocking out some of the man's teeth, after reportedly being upset with the result of a dance battle at a party near Longwood University in August.

It is unclear what, if any, repercussions Johnson will face from the university.
