Catching up on the battery by 'gator case: The Pulaski County Prosecuting Attorney's Office agreed in December to nol pros domestic battery charges brought against Julie McGee, the ex-girlfriend of state Sen. Jeremy Hutchinson who was arrested in September after allegedly striking the legislator with a preserved alligator head, causing his (the legislator's) head to bleed. A trial had been set in District Judge Alice Lightle's court Dec. 18.

Hutchinson, the chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, asked Prosecuting Attorney Larry Jegley to drop the charges to spare his further embarrassment; here's his request, provided by Jegley in response to a Freedom of Information request.
