Varlamov Charge Dropped 12/20/13
DENVER - Prosecutors are dropping a domestic violence case against Colorado goalie Semyon Varlamov (var-LAH'-mawf), saying they have new information leading them to believe they couldn't win a conviction.
The 25-year old was arrested and charged with misdemeanor assault after his girlfriend told police he knocked her down, stomped on her chest and dragged her by her hair at their apartment on Oct. 30.
Lynn Kimbrough, a spokeswoman for the DA, declined to offer specifics on the new information that led prosecutors to drop the case.
Varlamov has been free on $5,000 bond and has been traveling and playing with the team.
