Charges dropped against Pop Kohanowich

Some good news for you to start off the week. Remember the case of Pop Kohanowich, the patriotic senior citizen inexplicably charged with assault against a police officer after placing his hand on the officer’s shoulder? :

The assault charge against a 79-year-old man called the “Patriotic Grandpa” was dropped this morning by Guilford District Attorney Doug Henderson.

The controversial case ended with a whisper as Alexander Kohanowich stood with his attorney Seth Cohen in a Greensboro courtroom.

The case was never discussed in open court.

Kohanowich said afterward he was happy with the result. He would like for the city to apologize and pay for his legal expenses. But he has no plans to sue.

“I love this city,” he said outside the courtroom. “I had a choice to move to Greensboro and I certainly have no hard feelings.”

The decision ends a controversy that started more than a month ago in the grassy median beside the Greensboro Coliseum complex…

…After the story first appeared in the News & Record, Kohanowich’s case was picked up by national syndicated columnist Michelle Malkin and prompted a flurry of calls and e-mails about the case from as far away as Indiana, Mississippi and California.

Malkin’s headline: “Drop the charges against Pop.”

Glad to see some common sense exercised.
