Charges Dropped Against Jorgenson

Item: Battery charge dropped: Former legislator Jorgenson accused of throwing server/David Cole, Press

More Info: A judge has dismissed the case against former Republican state Sen. Mike Jorgenson, who was charged with misdemeanor battery for an incident at his Hayden restaurant. Jorgenson, 64, of Hayden Lake, was accused of throwing a now-former bartender and server of his restaurant, The Copa, to the ground over a dispute over pay.  City of Coeur d'Alene chief criminal deputy attorney Wes Somerton filed a motion to dismiss the case in court late last week. A judge immediately approved it. Jorgenson's trial was scheduled for this week.
