The district attorney's office has dismissed the case in which former Atlanta Hawks forward Pero Antic was charged with obstruction of justice and disorderly conduct, reports ESPN's Ian Begley.

The case and subsequent charges stemmed from an April 8 incident which resulted in Antic and former teammate Thabo Sefolosha being handcuffed and booked by New York City police officers outside the 1OAK club around 4 a.m.

According to the police report, Antic and Sefolosha refused to clear the area while officers were trying to establish a crime scene.

Sefolosha was also charged with resisting arrest, while Antic was charged with harassment.

Prior to the players being detained by authorities, Chris Copeland - then a member of the Indiana Pacers - was stabbed outside the same club.

Antic, 33, signed a two-year deal with Turkish League superpower Fenerbahce Ulker in June.

While the case against Antic has been dropped, Sefolosha's trial date is reportedly set for Oct. 5.

The 31-year-old Swiss guard suffered a broken leg during the incident - ultimately ending his season - and remains uncertain about his return to the basketball court.
