Domestic violence charges against Tomczak withdrawn
Allegheny County prosecutors today withdrew criminal charges against former Steelers quarterback Mike Tomczak stemming from a domestic dispute with his wife at their Bell Acres home.
Tomczak's attorney, Robert Del Greco, said prosecutors withdrew the charges at the wife's urging. Tomczak was scheduled for a preliminary hearing today before District Judge Robert Ford.
"This is a private matter between the Tomczak family," Del Greco said.
The former quarterback was charged with two counts of simple assault for the April 26 incident where his wife, Dawn Tomczak, suffered a minor scrape and bruises to her foot but did not require hospital treatment, police said.
Mike Tomczak, a graduate of Ohio State University, played for the Bears, Packers, Browns, Steelers and Lions in a career that began in 1985 and ended after an injury-plagued 2000 season.
