Case Summary:
The defendant was charged with a single count of assault 4. The charge came out of an incident in which the defendant was alleged to have attacked a bouncer at an establishment by punching him a single time. The defendant was arrested and charged with the offense. A few days before the trial was set to begin the State dismissed the case. 

Attorney Comments:
"This was another case in which the police did little to no investigation and the district attorney cared more about trying to get a conviction than the truth. My client and his wife had been drinking at an establishment. At some point in the evening the bar tender had decided to cut my client's wife off from receiving any more drinks. My client, who was frustrated by this action, voiced his displeasure with this decision. This exchange was not hostile. Shortly after that my client and his wife were told to leave. As my client and his wife were exiting the building a verbal exchange between my client and the bouncer occurred. As my client was walking out of the door the bouncer shoved my client through the doors of the building to the outside. My client, having just been attacked, responded with a single punch and put the bouncer down. The bouncer was much larger than my client. We knew all of this because we spent several months fighting the establishment for the security tape. The bar, for obvious reasons, didn't want to turn it over. This video tape could have easily been viewed by the police at the time but they didn't bother. Instead they simply took the bouncer's word that my client was being belligerent and that my client was the aggressor. After we disclosed the video tape to the State, which showed the bouncer and police narrative was completely wrong, the DA still wanted my client to plead guilty to a violation (non-criminal offense). My client still refused and trial dates were kept. A few days before trial was to begin the State finally dismissed the case."
