Charges Against OL Bridges Dropped

Charges against Skins 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.

Bridges was a member of the Panthers when he was arrested on December 7th in Charlotte. He was accused of spraying champagne on other customers and getting into a dispute with a restaurant employee a night earlier while he celebrated his anniversary with his wife.

It marked the second time in 16 months that Bridges was arrested on an assault charge. He was convicted of pointing a gun at a woman outside a strip club a day before the Panthers reported to training camp in 2007.

The team suspended Bridges for the first two regular-season games for that incident. He was later convicted, given a suspended 60-day jail sentence and ordered to perform community service.
