Charges of disorderly conduct and unlawful restraint against prominent White Plains, N.Y., attorney and lobbyist Albert J. Pirro in connection with a in Riverside have reportedly been dismissed in court.
Pirro's attorney, Edward Gavin, with Bridgeport-based Meehan, Meehan & Gavin, told the Greenwich Time that the "state indicated that they weren't going to prosecute the case."
"We thanked the prosecutor for looking at this case intelligently," Gavin told the paper.
Police said Pirro — the estranged husband of former Westchester County District Attorney turned TV show host Jeanine Pirro — had been involved in an argument with a woman at the J House at about 10:20 p.m. on June 14.
Police said hotel and restaurant security reported "that the male identified by his NY license as Albert J. Pirro Jr. was grabbing the female'(s) wrists and vigorously shaking her. That he was also not allowing her to leave the building."
"In my opinion, Greenwich police overreacted here," Gavin told the Greenwich Time. "He never should have been arrested."
