A domestic dispute involving Denver Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson has been dismissed in Arapahoe County Court. Per the Denver Post: “Lawson, 25, was arrested in August after a dispute with his girlfriend, Ashley Nicole Pettiford. She was also arrested in the case which allegedly involved a loud verbal dispute and broken cell phones. Charges against her have also been dismissed. ‘Based on our continued investigation and developments after the filing of the cases, we dismissed the cases in the interest of justice,’ said Lisa Pinto, a spokeswoman with the Arapahoe County District Attorney’s. Lawson faced charges of criminal mischief and harassment and had entered a not guilty plea prior to the dismissal. The couple also had mandatory restraining orders placed against each other as part of the case.”
