HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – Charges against a Dauphin County deputy district attorney accused of simple assault and harassment have been dismissed.

Andrea Sherman, 27, was arrested earlier this month after police were called to a home in East Pennsboro Township, in Cumberland County.

A man at the home told police that Sherman jumped on his back, began striking him, then punched him in the eye. He had a swollen red mark under his eye and scratches on his back, police said in the criminal complaint.

It is not known why the charges against Sherman were dismissed.

District Attorney Fran Chardo said Sherman, who had been suspended, is expected to return to work later this week.
