Charges dropped against former Clemson coach Adair

[JURISPRUDENCE] Former Clemson men's soccer coach Trevor Adair, arrested last year in a late-night incident with his two daughters, had assault charges against him dropped on Tuesday.

Adair will pay a $1,092 fine to the city of Clemson for violating a noise ordinance -- a fair resolution to the charges, according to his lawyer, Ryan Beasley, in an email to AP.

Adair was arrested in April and released on a $10,000 personal recognizance bond after being charged with two counts of assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature.

Police received a 911 call with reports of a fight and were told by witnesses that Adair struck his two daughters several times, causing minor injuries.

Clemson Athletic Director Terry Don Phillips placed Adair on a leave of absence and Adair later resigned.

Clemson assistant coach Phil Hindson stepped in after Adair's resignation in June. The Tigers went 6-12-1 under Hindson in 2009.

In early January, Mike Noonan, who led Brown to 10 NCAA Tournament appearances and eight Ivy League Championships in 15 years, was named the Tigers' new head coach.
