Todd McKenney, judge from Dancing With the Stars, today had the charges withdrawn for drug possession due to lack of evidence.
Todd McKenney was charged with possessing the prohibited drug gamma hydroxybutyrate – also known as GHB or fantasy – after being found unconscious in Ruschutters Bay Park on Anzac Day.
He was allegedly found with a vial of the drug in his pocket after spending time at a friend’s party.
Todd McKenney has maintained his innocence throughout. I must confess I was a bit sceptical about it all.
McKenney’s lawyers were going to show there was ample opportunity for the drugs to have been planted in his jeans, therefore NSW Police decided not to proceed.
McKenney – who is currently starring as drag queen Mitzi in the musical Priscilla: Queen of the Desert – was relieved that the charge had been dropped.

Ok so your trial for drug possession is coming up, so Todd’s McKenney’s PR team decides some positive spin needs to occur to garner sympathy for him.
Now if the best they can do is a story where he was attacked in the supermarket by a bloke with sausages because he wasn’t nice to Pauline Hansen, maybe he needs to think about getting a new public relations team.
“I was buying meat for a barbecue when this guy accused me of not giving Pauline Hanson, who starred in the first series, a fair go – and hit me with his sausages!” he says.
If you want the full story you will have to buy this week’s New Idea because I certainly won’t be.

Dancing With The Star judge, Todd McKenney wants his drug possession charge dropped. His case which went to court today has been postponed until December, because a mystery woman witness was unavailable.
I thought the Marcus Einfeld case had the monopoly on mysterious female witnesses.
Earlier this year McKenney was found semi-conscious in a park with GBH in his pocket.

My thoughts on his predicament can be found in a previous blog here.

The Daily Tele article here takes a more cynical view of the incident with them saying when the police arrived and searched him he told them the vial was GBH. Also witnesses said he was dancing until 5.00am in the morning.
Whilst the SMH(hard copy only) have taken a more compassionate line saying that the Sydney Star Observer had reported last week there was a increase in drink spiking incidents in the gay and Lesbian community.

Todd McKenny is a lush.
Todd McKenny a judge on Dancing with the Stars was found guilty for drink driving and was banned from driving until July. The full details are here. What I found interesting that he only copped such a small penalty when he was already on a good behaviour licence. Methinks if he wasn’t a celeb a much harsher penalty would have been given out.
