The third-degree harassment charges against DeMarcus Cousins have been dropped, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.
In August, an arrest warrant was issued for Cousins on a misdemeanor domestic violence charge in Mobile, Alabama. A few days later, TMZ published audio of a phone call between Cousins and his ex-girlfriend Christy West in which Cousins allegedly threatened to kill her for not allowing their seven-year-old son to attend his wedding. West sought a restraining order against Cousins after she said in court documents and a police report that outside of the threat, he also previously choked her. Now, the case is dismissed.
Cousins signed a one-year deal with the Los Angeles Lakers over the summer and continues to rehab from a torn ACL he suffered in a preseason workout. He’s expected to miss the 2019-20 season, although the Lakers haven’t ruled out him returning for the playoffs.
