Criminal charges against a Fayette County man accused of assaulting his son and daughter-in-law when he was served chicken that was baked instead of fried were dismissed Thursday when the victims declined to testify.

State police charged George Thomas Rhome, 45, of Morgantown Street, Point Marion, with two counts each of simple assault and harassment.

The son and daughter-in-law told police that an argument over the meal turned physical about 10:15 p.m. Aug. 26.

Charges were dismissed Thursday when the victims declined to testify during a preliminary hearing before Masontown District Judge Randy Abraham.
