article imageRestraining order against Randy Moss dropped

By Owen Weldon     Mar 11, 2008 in Sports
Court records show Rachelle Washington, who obtained a restraining order against New England Patriots star Randy Moss, has requested the order be dissolved and the case dismissed.
On March 3 Washington filed papers with the Broward County Circuit Court clerk's office and requested that the case be dropped.
Washington claimed that Moss harmed her at her Florida home on Jan. 6 and Moss denied that allegation but he did acknowledge that there was an accident involving Washington.
On Tuesday sources tried to contact attorneys for Moss and Washington but they could not immediately be reached for comment but a source said that a judge must agree to the dismissal request but that is generally considered a formality.
On Jan. 14 the restraining order was issued after Washington accused Moss of causing her serious injury.
Moss has said in the past that the allegations were false and he said that Washington had demanded a payment of six figures before taking legal action.
It is not clear that if Washington's request to dismiss the case is the result of an out-of-court settlement or agreement with Moss.
This is not the first time Moss has had off-the-field problems which include a 2002 incident in which he bumped a traffic control officer with his car and another in 2001 when he verbally abused corporate sponsors on a team bus.
