CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Charges against Washington Redskins offensive lineman Jeremy Bridges stemming from an incident at a North Carolina restaurant have been dropped.
Mecklenburg County District Court spokesman Charles Keller said Monday that two counts of simple assault and one count of communicating threats were dismissed by the District Attorney. No other information was immediately available.
Bridges was a member of the Carolina Panthers when he was arrested on Dec. 7 in Charlotte. He was accused of spraying champagne on other customers and getting into a dispute with a restaurant employee.
Bridges was convicted of a separate assault charge in 2008.
The Panthers released him in a salary-cap move in February. He signed with the Redskins last month.
