LAS VEGAS (AP) - Misdemeanor battery charges have been dropped
against a UFC ring girl and her boyfriend after they were arrested
in May in an alleged domestic scuffle at a Las Vegas Strip hotel
An aide to Clark County District Attorney Steve Wolfson said
Tuesday there wasn't enough evidence to proceed against 26-year-old
Arianny Lopez of Las Vegas and 34-year-old Praveen Chandra of
Sherman Oaks, Calif.
Lopez has modeled for magazines including Playboy under the name
Arianny Celeste. She's been a UFC octagon girl since 2006.
Police arrested the two on May 26 at the Wynn Las Vegas.
Lopez accused Chandra of choking her, and told police she threw
a glass vase at Chandra.
Chandra accused Lopez of kicking him in the nose in a struggle
for a cellphone.
