Robert Schimmel had been arrested for allegedly assaulting his wife. Now though, his wife has dropped the charges and the district attorney here in Los Angeles has said that without her testimony there is not enough evidence to proceed so the case has been dropped. Back in early May, Robert had been arrested by the police after an argument with his wife where she had said he hit her.
She is still proceeding with the divorce action which she filed a few days after the incident but will basically let him go free to find a new girlfriend or wife and let her find out what it is like to live with him. On the one hand I am happy she hasn't decided to drop the divorce case, but obviously something happened that night or else she wouldn't have called the cops and wouldn't be divorcing him.
On the other hand I hate the fact that now he can always say he didn't do anything wrong and that it was all a misunderstanding or something.
