PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) — A minority owner of the Arizona Coyotes is in the clear after a domestic violence case against him in Colorado was dismissed Tuesday. Andrew Barroway was charged with assault and domestic violence while in Aspen, Colo., in March. Barroway issued a statement Tuesday saying the district attorney’s office in Pitkin County, Colorado, had decided to dismiss the case against him.

According to the police at the time, witnesses reported a disturbance in a room at the Limelight Hotel around 8:40 a.m. on March 23. Police said a verbal altercation between him and his wife had turned physical. Barroway was previously charged with third-degree assault, second-degree assault and domestic violence. The NHL then suspended him from the league indefinitely.

The motion to dismiss was filed on Aug. 30 by the District Attorney’s office for the 9th Judicial District, which includes Aspen. A judge has since signed the order, dismissing the case. It’s unclear what action the league will take in light of the dismissed charge.

A prominent hedge fund manager, Barroway owns 5% of the Coyotes.
