Boxer Mike Tyson's ex-wife Robin Givens had charges dismissed against her in court on Monday (13SEP04), after three police officers failed to show up for her traffic court trial.

In January (04), the former HEAD OF THE CLASS star struck elderly pedestrian MARIA ANTONIA ALCOVER as she was about to step onto the sidewalk after crossing a busy street in Miami, Florida, according to police.

Cops say that, after stopping at a red light, Givens turned the corner and hit the 89-year-old woman, sending her into a backward fall. The back wheel of the actress' MERCEDES-BENZ sports utility vehicle then reportedly ran over Alcover's leg.
