DENVER - TMZ is reporting that adventurer Aron Ralston found a way to get assault charges dropped against his girlfriend -- he didn't show up to testify against her.
Ralston, who cut off his arm after getting trapped by a boulder in Utah, and Vita Shannon were arrested in December.
According to the arrest affidavit obtained by 7NEWS, Shannon said Ralston pushed her on the shoulder during an argument over Ralston's child from another relationship.
Ralston said Shannon punched him twice in the back of the head.
Charges against Ralston were dropped within hours of the incident.
