Assault charge dropped against UCLA’s Dragovic
A felony assault charge has been dropped against UCLA basketball
forward Nikola Dragovic, who was accused of assaulting a man after
a concert in Hollywood.
The Los Angeles County district attorney’s office said Monday
that it had insufficient evidence to pursue the case. A charge
against Dragovic’s friend, Aleksandar Stanisic, was also dropped
Authorities say Stanisic argued with another man and his
girlfriend during a concert. Dragovic, a 22-year-old forward from
Serbia, was accused of rushing the man and slamming him into a
glass case, which shattered.
Dragovic’s attorney, Jon Artz, had said the alleged victim was
the aggressor in the confrontation, slapped Stanisic, threatened
Dragovic and pursued him downstairs after the concert.
