Back in March, Detroit Lions safety Amari Spievey was arrested following a dispute over child support. He was subsequently charged with third-degree assault, risk of injury to a child and disorderly conduct. His girlfriend was also charged with risk of injury to a child and disorderly conduct.
On Friday, the charges against Spievey (and presumably his girlfriend) were dropped, according to Carlos Monarrez.

Following the incident, Spievey and his girlfriend entered a family violence education program. The expectation all along was for the charges to be dismissed upon completion of the program, and that's exactly what ended up happening.
With this situation wrapped up, the Lions are now awaiting word on defensive end Ronnell Lewis' legal issue. He was arrested back in April following a bar fight and was charged with three misdemeanor complaints.
