It is now being reported that the woman who was allegedly slammed to the ground by Rutgers football player Leonte Carroo in a September 12 brawl outside the Hale Center has agreed to drop a request for a restraining order, and will ask the court to dismiss a simple assault charge against Carroo, according to a signed agreement.

The woman and Carroo — who is suspended from the team pending the resolution of the charge against him — appeared in Family Court Tuesday for a hearing about a request for a restraining order. Judge John Jorgensen, sitting in New Brunswick, asked the woman whether she was agreeing to drop the restraining order voluntarily. She said yes.

Later Tuesday, Carroo and the woman will appear in Piscataway municipal court, where a simple assault charge against him could be dropped. Police signed the complaint, but the alleged victim, a Rutgers

student and former recruiting ambassador, agreed with Carroo’s attorneys that she would request the charge be dropped.

William Gonzalez, an attorney for the woman, said: “We’re probably going down that route.”

Carroo’s attorney William Fetky said he was hopeful that with the resolution of both the restraining order and the simple assault charge, Carroo could be back on the field this weekend.

The two sides also agreed that they would not contact one another.

The fight involved the woman, who previously had a dating relationship with Carroo, as well as Carroo’s girlfriend, Maria Vega. Vega filed cross-charges against the woman, but only Carroo’s case was at stake today, Fetky said.

Even is Caroo returns Saturday against highly ranked Michigan State, Rutgers will still be without its coach, Kyle Flood, who is serving a suspension for contacting a teacher of one of his players.  This program has problems.
