Maryland men's lacrosse attackman Benjamin Chisolm was cleared in a Virginia sexual assault case Thursday after being accused of molesting a woman at a concert, Chisolm's lawyer said. Prosecutors dropped the felony sex assault charge against Chisolm and a judge cleared him of assault after a brief bench trial, according to the attorney. But Chisolm was found guilty of being drunk in public and received a fine and community service. Chisolm and the woman were at a Zac Brown Band concert at the Jiffy Lube Live venue in June and she had fallen asleep. She told police that when she woke up, a man was lying by her side and touching her inappropriately.
