Radja, Oshie Charges Dropped
CHN Staff Report
Misdemeanor charges against former North Dakota forward T.J. Oshie and New Hampshire forward Mike Radja have been dismissed.
The pair had been charged with disorderly conduct, reportedly stemming from public urination in a stuck elevator at Oshie's apartment building. The two were part of a group socializing after their two teams played a game in late December 2007.
According to court records, the charges were dismissed by "compromise," meaning the aggrieved party — in this case the landlord of the building where it occurred — decided to pursue remedy through civil action, or believes it has been fairly compensated.
Under North Dakota statute, a compromise is only allowed under certain circumstances, including misdemeanors and incidents that aren't cases of domestic violence.
