Remember a few weeks ago, when Gary Dourdan was beaten up by his much smaller girlfriend? Well according to Dourdan, it was all a big mistake.According to, the criminal case against Dourdan’s girlfriend, Maria Asis del Alamo, was recently dismissed.  Seems like the couple were not brawling, but instead were getting it in.

A nosy neighbor mistook passion for violence. The cops came and, despite Gary’s protests, they arrested Maria after noticing a scratch on Gary’s neck.

Prosecutors now realize it was the sound of love, so the case has gone bye-bye.
