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.
