All charges in the assault case against Steelers linebacker Anthony Chickillo have been withdrawn.
According to WPXI, Chickillo had a preliminary court hearing on Wednesday, during which both him and his girlfriend said they did not want to pursue the case. Earlier this month Chickillo was charged with simple assault, criminal mischief and harassment after an alleged fight with his girlfriend on October 20th.
Chickillo is currently on the NFL’s Reserve/Commissioner Exempt List which prevents him from playing or practicing with the team.
