The Suffolk County District Attorney's office says it has dropped a charge of indecent assault and battery against wide receiver Julian Edelman for an incident at Storyville last month:
In a "nolle prosequi" form filed today in Boston Municipal Court, prosecutors wrote:
Little Christopher, who lives somewhere in the Philadelphia area, really, really, really hates Tom Brady. If you were his father, would you put this online?

Pats Propaganda posts a photo of Sarah Palin in a Patriots hoodie:
I don't know what bothers me more, that the shirt says "Once a Patriot always a Patriot" (because when was she ever a Patriots fan?) or that she's just another politician stealing our name to appear "patriotic."
Yes, really, it got that far. Guy claimed the Patriots owed him and other Jets fans $185 million. Plus interest, of course.
When the train that's supposed to take you from Foxboro back to Boston after that game breaks down.
After that last Jets touchdown, Ninja Chick reported an apparent Jets fan on the Red Line at Ashmont:
Who clips their nails in public ugh STOP !!! the pats just lost and don't want to hear your clipping.
For smaller storms, we've got the Bouchard. But for a storm like this, we shift to the Woodhead, as in: I hope the snow doesn't get any deeper than Danny Woodhead-high.
To see the snow for yourself, the state has livecams beaming snow pix from along 128, 93, 3 and the turnpike.
Sunday's Patriots game disturbed Matt Goisman, not so much because of the sub-par play (the Packers, with a substitute quarterback, really?) as because of the fans:
I've never seen a crowd as overwhelmingly nasty as I did at Gillette Sunday night. It wasn't just the booing. It wasn't just the profanity. It was the raw anger of it all that I had never experienced before, and hopefully never will again. For God's sake, this is football we're talking about! Where's the fun? Where's the joy? ...
Bill Swerski probably isn't too happy tonight.
Dan Shaughnessy Watch dissects the effort by the "fifth-degree black belt in the dark arts of character assassination and innuendo" to tie Belichick to the Broncos videogate thing without offering up a lick of evidence.
The Boston Police Department has issued an official statement on a collision this morning at Comm. Ave and Gloucester Street between a red Mercury Villager mini-van and a black Audi S8:
Tom Brady was in a two-car accident this morning at Comm. Ave. and Gloucester Street. Channel 7 has some video which seems to show that the front of Brady's Audi hit the right side of a mini-van. The Globe reports fire crews had to use the Jaws of Life to extricate a man from the rear of the mini-van.
The fan - would it surprise you to learn he's a lawyer? - sued Bill Belichick and the Patriots under federal racketeering and New Jersey consumer-protection laws, alleging the team's taping of opponents deprived him of the full value of his season tickets to Jets games.
But the judges of the US Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit in Philadelphia said he'd get no Hail Mary Pass from them.
At least Truck Day is Feb. 12.
Hub Money notes which Pats players will soon be free agents.
Angela wonders if she should blame herself:
I know the coin of the Web realm is the hyperlink, but no, I refuse to link to Dan Shaughnessy's slap upside the head of Patriots fans today. It's just too annoying. For some reason, Globe editors felt it important to use valuable space on the front page to let Shanko tell us to stop acting like spoiled brats and get over our hope the Patriots win today. Bonus points for a stupid Woodstock reference (yes, Dan, we get it, you're old enough to remember Woodstock, even if you were too busy at clown school to go).
