The domestic battery case against former Florida Gators and Clearwater High running back Adarius Lemons has been dropped.

Alachua County court records show the charges were formally dismissed earlier this week because the victim was unable or unwilling to cooperate.

Lemons was arrested in September on one felony complaint of domestic battery by strangulation and two misdemeanor complaints (battery and criminal mischief property damage). He was accused of slamming his longtime girlfriend into a wall and bed, putting his hands around her until she could not breathe and shattering her phone, according to the original sworn complaint.
