Battery charge against FSU player dropped

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - A prosecutor has dropped a felony
charge against a Florida State football player who was accused of
hurling a chair at a woman during a brawl in the school's student

Wide receiver Richard Goodman had been charged with aggravated
battery. He was charged six months after the fight when another
fight participant accused him of throwing the chair and seriously
injuring a female student.

Assistant State Attorney Jon Fuchs filed a court document
Thursday saying witnesses named at least four other people as the
chair-thrower. Fuchs says no one identified Goodman.

Goodman was among five players suspended for a game last season
for the fight with members of a fraternity. Goodman was suspended
from the team after his May arrest until the charge was resolved.
