The Boston Globe is reporting that Tony was cleared of all charges against him from the fight outside the Chicago restaurant 19 months ago.
The Celtics' Tony Allen has been acquitted of all charges stemming from a fight nearly 19 months ago in a Chicago restaurant, according to the Globe's Peter May.
After a short trial in Chicago, Judge James Linn made the determination that the state had not made its case against Allen, who had been indicted on three counts of aggravated battery.
The decision came down around 2:15 p.m. today. Allen was present for the trial, but was not called to testify. The charges stemmed from a fight which turned into a shooting.
This is very good news considering Tony's progress last year on the court. Hopefully with this distraction out of the way, he will be able to concentrate on his rehab and be ready to get back to last season's form this season.
