Charges against Amar’e Stoudemire were dropped
Misdemeanor charges against former NBA big man Amar’e Stoudemire were dropped by the Miami-Dude State Attorney’s office on Tuesday.
Stoudemire was arrested for allegedly punching and slapping one of his teen daughters in December, drawing blood.
“A little over a month ago, my family’s world was turned upside down as I faced allegations that we all knew to be untrue – which I instantly and publicly denied,” Stoudemire said in a statement provided to The Post. “Today, I’m grateful that after a full investigation, all charges were dismissed. Fortunately, my family and most importantly, my incredible children are all doing well. My faith in the goodness we all possess has never wavered and has never been greater. My love for my family is without limits.
“I am appreciative of all the respect and support received from family, friends and colleagues. Now that this chapter is closed, I look forward to all the great moments ahead with my family.”
