Judge dismisses remaining charges against Allen Iverson



PHILADELPHIA -- Allen Iverson was cleared Tuesday of the remaining two misdemeanor charges against him, five days after prosecutors said they wanted to dismiss the case.

The NBA All-Star was charged in July with barging into an apartment with a gun and threatening two men while looking for his wife. All but two of the charges were dismissed in July after Iverson's two accusers couldn't agree on whether he had displayed a weapon.

District Attorney Lynne Abraham said Thursday she would drop the remaining charges because the men didn't want to testify. Municipal Court Administrative Judge Seamus P. McCaffery issued a written order signing off on the request.

Charges also were dropped against Iverson's uncle, Gregory, who police said had been with the NBA star the night he looked for his wife.
