THE SIDELINES : Green’s Wife Seeks to Drop Counts
The wife of Hugh Green has filed a waiver to drop charges of spouse battery against the Miami Dolphins linebacker, saying news accounts about the football player’s arrest were blown out of proportion.
Green was arrested early Sunday and released on $10,000 bond. He was charged with striking Monique Green several times in the head and chest with his fist, the police report said. The linebacker’s wife allegedly hit her head on the bed during the altercation and was taken to St. Joseph’s Hospital where she was treated and released.
Chris Hoyer, chief assistant state attorney, said his office will screen the case and decide whether to file formal charges against Green even though the complaint has been dropped.
