Charges dropped against Kostopoulos

RDS is reporting that the charges laid against Tom Kostopoulos after an altercation with Tampa police have been dropped.

Kostopoulos wrote a letter of apology to the officers involved in the incident, which happened when Kostopoulos came to the defence of Ryan O’Byrne outside a bar.

O’Byrne’s case is still pending a decision by the Tampa prosecutor’s office.

    It was almost certainly a bogus charge in the first place.

  2. Proudones says:

    I agree.
    Now let’s get you back on the ice TK.

    one down, one to go.
    Let’s hope this thing gets resolved quickly so O’Byrne can get on with his life and continue to develop as the solid D-man he will be. I’m sure he’s learned a valuable lesson through all this.

  4. 24 Cups says:

    Tom the Bomb is cleared and now we move on to O’Byrne. Once that situation is rectified we can then deal with Brittney Spears and Lindsay Lohan. Before you watch Entertainment Tonight at 7pm today please try and remember that we are retiring Bob Gainey’s jersey at 7pm as well. Hopefully, it won’t be a tough call:-)

    On Mitch Melnick’s blog, he’d suggested that Kostopoulos purposely got arrested so that the kid wouldn’t spend the night in jail alone. If this IS true, what a character.
