Charges against four stars of the CW’s ‘The Vampire Diaries’ were dismissed this week by a Georgia judge.

Cast members Nina Dobrev, Candice Accola, Kayla Ewell and Sara Canning were arrested in August, along with photographer Tyler Shields and extra Krystal Vayda, after a photo shoot on the Rumble Road Bridge caused concerned motorists to call in complaints. Drivers told authorities that the women were dangling from the bridge and flashing passers-by. Ewell has publicly denied the allegations.

After authorities searched Shields’ camera and discovered photos of the women hanging over the bridge ledge and simulating being tossed over the edge, the six were booked at the Monroe County Sheriff’s Department. They were charged with disorderly conduct.

Shields posted $500 bail for each person, for a total of $3000. The bonds were forfeited when all six failed to appear in court. According to a Monroe County court spokesperson, Judge Geoffrey Davis dismissed the case without issuing any arrest warrants.


‘The Vampire Diaries,’ which shoots in Atlanta, airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. on the CW.
