Domestic assault charges against ISU defensive lineman David Irving were dropped Jan. 15.

Irving was scheduled to go on trial Jan. 28, but all charges and further appearances were dropped Jan. 15. Irving was charged after being arrested Nov. 13 when police were called that night to 1415 S. Grand Ave. regarding a possible domestic assault that occurred between 2 and 4 p.m. that day, leading to Irving’s arrest.

According to police records, police spoke with the victim on the night of the arrest and she “stated her boyfriend and the father of her child held her down earlier in the afternoon and cut a large portion of hair off.”

The victim told police the defendant punched her in the leg several times with a closed fist and officers noticed several bruises on the victim’s leg and a large scratched area on the back side of her leg. The victim also had a small cut on her hand, which she said was caused by the scissors.
