The abuse charge filed against Phillies pitcher Brett Myers was dismissed today after his wife, Kim, told a Boston court she did not want to pursue prosecution against her husband stemming from his June arrest.
Myers was arrested June 23 along a Boston street for hitting his wife in the face. Witnesses said Myers also dragged his wife by the hair.
According the AP, Boston judge Raymond Dougan accepted as fact that Myers struck his wife, but dismissed the charge despite objection from prosecutors. Kim Wickman, a Berks County native, told the judge that both she and Brett had been drinking the night of the incident, and denied that other physical abuse has occurred.
