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

Monday.

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.
