TMZ reports that all domestic charges against former WWE Superstar Adam Rose have been dropped.
Rose has shown that he’s getting professional help for his marital issues after the incident at his Florida home last month. Rose was charged with misdemeanor domestic violence and felony tampering with a witness after grabbing his wife by the face during an argument, then preventing her from calling 911.
Rose’s wife begged the judge to go easy on Rose, saying he did not hurt her in any way and that the situation was blown out of proportion. She also told the judge last month that Rose had been getting counseling from his pastor and she believed he was responding positively to it.
The incident happened while Rose was serving a WWE Wellness suspension and led to him being granted his WWE release after being suspended indefinitely.
Prosecutors told TMZ that the victim stopped cooperating and filed documents to drop the case, which is now officially closed.
Rose’s lawyer, Maj Vasigh, told TMZ:
“The charges were dropped in this case because, as both he and his wife have maintained from the beginning, Mr. Leppan was absolutely innocent. Mr. Leppan did not, nor would he ever hurt his wife or anyone else.”
“Suspicion of domestic violence is a very serious matter, as it should be. Responding officers sometimes, even if unsure of what happened, make an arrest just to be on the safe side. That is what happened here; and after a careful look at totality of circumstances, the justice system came to the correct conclusion.”
“Mr. and Mrs. Leppan both continue to be madly in love. And while no relationship is ever perfect, they are relieved that this very public personal experience is over.”
