NEW YORK (AP) -Assault charges were dropped against Houston Rockets guard Rafer Alston, who was accused of a slashing a man with a knife in a nightclub.
Prosecutors were unable to prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt, and the assault and attempted assault charges were dropped Friday, the Manhattan district attorney's office said.
Alston was arrested Aug. 27, 2007 after a confrontation with Wilbert Ashman of Long Island inside Club Stereo in Manhattan. Ashman told police he and Alston accidentally bumped each other, and during an ensuing argument the 31-year-old player cut him.
Defense lawyer Alberto Ebanks did not immediately return a call.
