Prosecutors have dropped the assault charges against ex-NY Yankees infielder Pat Kelly and his GF stemming from an October arrest, TMZ Sports has learned.
We broke the story … Kelly and Marina Cernova were arrested at the London Hotel in NYC on Oct. 1 after Marina called cops to report Pat had attacked her.
When cops arrived, they believed Marina also socked Pat in the face — so they were both arrested and booked for misdemeanor assault.
Pat — who played for the Yanks from ’91 to ’97 — had denied all wrongdoing and claimed the incident was a giant misunderstanding.
Now, we’re told the charges have been officially dropped — mainly because both sides stopped cooperating with prosecutors.
We’re also told the temporary restraining orders that had been issued — ordering both sides to stay away from each other — have also been dismissed.
