HONOLULU (CBSDC/AP) — An assault charge has been dropped against a former Honolulu nightclub owner accused of hitting Washington Redskins tackle Trent Williams on the head with a bottle.
A judge on Monday dismissed the charge against Michael Miske Jr., former part-owner of the M Nightclub. He was accused of assaulting Williams and his brother at the nightclub two days before the Pro Bowl. Williams needed stiches to his head and wasn’t able to play in the game.
Minnesota Vikings tackle Matt Kalil replaced Williams on the NFC team’s roster.
The dismissal came after a prosecutor told the judge the brothers wouldn’t be returning to Hawaii for trial.
The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports Miske’s brother John Stancil is awaiting trial. Williams was a no-show in April, postponing trial to July.
KHON-TV reports Miske’s attorney, Thomas Otake, says club staff members were protecting others from unruly players.
