‘MASH’ Star’s Abuse Case Is Dismissed

A criminal wife-beating charge against actor Harry Morgan was dismissed Wednesday by a West Los Angeles Municipal Court judge who had promised to drop the case if the “MASH” star completed a violence counseling program.

Morgan, 81, was charged July 7 with misdemeanor spousal battery after a confrontation in their Brentwood home left Barbara Morgan, his 70-year-old wife of 10 years, bruised and bloodied.

“Harry Morgan completed a six-month counseling program for domestic violence and anger management,” city attorney’s office spokesman Ted Goldstein said.
