Domestic case dropped against ‘127 Hours’ figure

DENVER — A domestic violence case has been dismissed against Aron Ralston, a Colorado adventurer whose self-amputation ordeal was made into the movie "127 Hours."

A court spokeswoman said Monday the case was dropped at the request of the city attorney, who didn't return a call seeking comment.

The case against Ralston's girlfriend, Vita Shannon, is pending. Her attorney entered a not guilty plea on her behalf but Shannon said nothing Monday during a court hearing.

Both were booked into jail early Sunday on suspicion of assault and wrongs to minors, a charge used when children are present during an incident but not necessarily hurt.

Police documents say their 8-week-old child was present at the time of the altercation.
