Domestic violence charges against Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Odubel Herrera were dropped Wednesday in New Jersey.

At a hearing in Atlantic City Municipal Court, prosecutor Kelley Blanchet said the case couldn't go forward without the cooperation of the alleged victim, who declined to press charges.

Atlantic City authorities could no longer pursue charges against him, because his girlfriend elected to no longer to pursue them.

Herrera, 27, was arrested on May 27 in an Atlantic City casino on a a domestic assault allegation. She accompanied Herrera to the hearing Wednesday and held hands with him as they left the courthouse. However, Herrera will undergo "betterer's counseling".

A judge reportedly dismissed the case Wednesday on the condition Herrera complete counseling within 60 days and provide a certificate showing the completion.

Herrera's girlfriend, Melany Martinez-Angulo, assured the judge that no one had pressured her to drop the case. No word yet on what the next step will be for Herrera's role on the Phillies or what Major League Baseball will do.

Police said "handprint markings" and scratches were found on her.

The Phillies said in a statement in May: 'Upon receiving this information, we immediately reported the incident to Major League Baseball, which has informed us that Herrera has been placed on Administrative Leave.

He had been in the midst of his worst season as a pro, hitting a lowly.222 with 1 HR and 16 RBI's over 39 games with the Phillies this season.
