RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - A judge has dropped a misdemeanor assault charge against VCU forward Mo Alie-Cox after his accuser admitted the accusation was false.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports (http://bit.ly/1K7LOwx ) that surveillance footage also showed that Alie-Cox did not punch Morgan Ashley Kaye at a Richmond nightclub on April 3. The footage showed Alie-Cox standing with his back to Kaye during her altercation with another woman.

Prosecutor Cynthia Micklem referenced an apology letter written by Kaye in asking Richmond General District Judge Eugene Cheek Sr. to dismiss the charge Tuesday. Defense attorney Mufeed Said provided a copy of the letter to the newspaper. Kaye wrote that the accusation was based on mistaken identity, and that she was sorry.

Alie-Cox, a redshirt sophomore, averaged 7.4 points, 5.7 rebounds and 1.9 blocked shots last season.
