Charges against four California dentists accused of kidnapping and sexually assaulting a woman at Las Vegas Strip resort have been dropped.   

Court records showed that the charges were dismissed.   

The men were arrested in late July after the woman told security at the Wynn Las Vegas resort that she was sexually assaulted in a suite while intoxicated.   

Lawyers for Ali Badkoobehi of San Diego and brothers Sina Edalat, Poria Edalat and Saman Edalat said the allegations were fabricated and predicted in August that the case would be dropped once prosecutors reviewed cellphone video evidence.   

The dentists were already free on their own recognizance and none of them attended Monday's hearing.
