All Charges Dropped Against Jorge Pena, Man Filmed Slapping Woman In NYC Subway Fight
He did nothing to deserve getting bullied, taunted and hit. He should have slapped the hell out of her. Maybe it will make her think twice before bullying someone else. LOL!Jorge Pena, 25, was one of four people arrested after a fight erupted on the F train as it pulled into West 4th Street station around 5 a.m. Saturday morning. Authorities determined that Pena acted in self defense after an allegedly drunk woman, Danay Howard, hit him with her stiletto. Howard was determined to be the aggressor, and is charged with felony assault and disorderly conduct. In video of the incident, which has more than 4.9 million YouTube views, Howard can be heard verbally antagonizing Pena, making fun of his fur hat and telling him that his jacket "came out in 1990" before ultimately taking a swing at him. Pena, who is the tall man in the 8-ball jacket, responded with an open-handed slap that sparked a brawl in the train car. Pena initially faced misdemeanor assault charges and spent four nights in jail. He was released on $1,000 bail Tuesday, his lawyer, Cary London, told the New York Post. Police confirmed the charges against Pena were dropped, the paper reported.
