Shark Tank's Javier Manjarres will not face charges



Shark Tank blogger Javier Manjarres rejoiced Monday in news prosecutors will not pursue attempted murder charges against him, according to an official document posted on his website.

“As some of you may have already heard, the Palm Beach County State Attorney’s office has dropped all criminal charges against me,” Manjarres said in a statement.

“First of all, I need to thank God for watching over I family and I during this very trying time in my life. I also need to extend appreciation to those friends and family members, especially my fiance Shel, who never wavered with the support and stuck by me through this entire ordeal.

“To the Boca Raton Police Department, as well as the Broward and Palm Beach County Sheriff’s offices, who all performed their jobs in the most professional way possible, thank you for treating me with the dignity and respect that all Americans deserve to be treated with.
Now, let’s talk politics!”

Manjarres, one of the earliest standout bloggers in Florida, was accused of attempted murder.
