Veteran British actor Billy Murray has escaped trial over assault allegations following an alleged bust-up with his wife.
The star, famed for numerous police and gangster roles in movies and TV drama shows, was arrested in April (11) at the Essex, England home of his partner Elaine amid reports of a fight.
Murray was charged with two counts of common assault but officials at Britain's Crown Prosecution Service have revealed the case has now been dropped.
A spokesperson tells Britain's Daily Mirror, "We can confirm that the case has been discontinued and no further action will be taken."
