CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Prosecutors have dismissed domestic violence charges against Panthers defensive end and soon-to-be free agent Greg Hardy after they said the accuser in the case couldn’t be found.
Hardy’s appeal in the case was set to begin Monday. But Mecklenburg County district attorney Andrew Murray told the judge that officials attempted many times to contact the woman, but failed.
Murray said Hardy, a former Ole Miss standout, had a reached a civil suit agreement with the woman. Hardy and his attorney left the courthouse and did not answer questions.
Hardy was convicted last summer on assault on a female and communicating threats.
Hardy made $13.1 million last season despite playing in one game after being placed on the commissioner’s exempt list.
