The district attorney's office requested that the charges be withdrawn.
The withdrawal of several charges against a woman whom police say assaulted three people in a November road rage incident in Baldwin Township has raised some eyebrows. While it is typical for district magistrates to grant the withdrawal of charges based on a lack of evidence, it also often occurs that the victims and/or witnesses of crimes do not wish to participate in the accused's prosecution. Such was the case of Amanda Marie Petrelli, whom a Baldwin Township police officer drew his gun at on Nov. 13 after a traffic accident involving the Dormont Borough woman escalated into violence. According to Baldwin Township police Chief Terrence P. O'Brien, Petrelli, 29, of Tennessee Avenue, punched two other women in the face and ran her vehicle…

After being attacked in the Strip District, a Brookline native was left with a fractured jaw, loose teeth, astronomical bills—and a throng of neighbors lending their help.
When William Reed Wingo went out one Saturday, he figured on it being a wild night—“wild” by his standards, anyway. He finished work (he’s the catering manager at Square Café in Regent Square), went for a six-mile run (he’s also the founder of the Square Run Club), and headed to the Strip District to go dancing. “A wild Saturday night for me is dancing at 11 and being home by 1 and in bed,” Wingo said. The night got crazier than he anticipated—before it even began. According to Wingo, he was walking along Smallman Street past the Heinz History Center around 11 p.m. A group of five men were in front of him. One turned around and “sucker-punched” him in the face, Wingo said, knocking his head back into a wall. Wingo heard his jaw crack, then…
