Domestic-violence charges against former Brewers reliever Francisco Rodriguez have been dropped, Bruce Vielmetti of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports.

In September, Rodriguez was arrested on charges he injured his girlfriend during a dispute. However, Waukesha County prosecutors have opted not to move forward both because of an inability to meet the burden of proof and also because Rodriguez's girlfriend and a witness to the alleged incident are believed to be back in Venezuela.

"At this point, I can't drag her back kicking and screaming," said Waukesha District Attorney Brad Schimel. "I've got little reason to believe either the victim or Mr. Rodriguez are ever going to be residents of Wisconsin again."

Rodriguez, a free agent, is highly unlikely to return to the Brewers.
