HONOLULU -

An assault charge has been dropped against a former Honolulu nightclub owner accused of hitting Washington Redskins tackle Trent Williams on the head with a bottle.

A judge on Monday dismissed the charge against Michael Miske Jr., former part-owner of the M Nightclub.  He was accused of assaulting Williams and his brother at the nightclub two days before the Pro Bowl.  Williams needed stiches to his head and wasn't able to play in the game.

The dismissal came after a prosecutor told the judge the brothers wouldn't be returning to Hawaii for trial.
