Final charge vs. Pearson dropped

Lions safety Kalvin Pearson had a misdemeanor charge of obstructing or opposing a police officer without violence dropped earlier this week, a person in the Florida state attorney's office said Friday.

Pearson was arrested in April on two felony counts of aggravated battery of a pregnant female and domestic battery by strangulation, and the misdemeanor charge of opposing an officer without force. The more serious charges were dropped during training camp.

Pearson probably will not face league discipline. Randall Liu, NFC information manager for the NFL, wrote in an email that the league "will review the court record to verify the facts, but discipline is unlikely when charges have been dismissed."

No reason was given for why attorneys decided not to pursue the misdemeanor. A status hearing scheduled for Thursday was canceled when charges were dropped.
