SUPERIOR Court Presiding Judge Roberto C. Naraja on Monday dismissed with prejudice the domestic case against 57-year-old Zaji O. Zajradhara.

With prejudice means the case cannot be refiled.

In May, Zajradhara was arrested after his girlfriend accused him of assaulting her during an argument at their apartment.

He was initially charged with assault, assault and battery, and domestic violence.

Later the government dropped the assault, and assault and battery charges.

On Aug. 3, Assistant Attorney Heather Barcinas asked the court to dismiss with prejudice, “in the interest of justice,” the remaining disturbing the peace charge.

Assistant Public Defender Vina Seelam represented Zajradhara.

Variety learned that the complainant, Zajradhara’s girlfriend, had told the court that “she did not want any stay-away order between her and Zaji.”

According to court documents, Zajradhara told police that he accidentally hit his girlfriend with a towel.

Court documents added that the girlfriend, who was still crying and was with an infant, told police that  Zajradhara was talking on the phone with a friend and that she got mad after hearing him tell the friend that “she’s lazy, has no job, and has no money.”

She said she told Zajradhara that she wanted to sleep at her mother’s house in Susupe with their two children, court documents stated.

Zajradhara got mad, grabbed a towel and hit her in the forehead with it, the court documents added.

The woman told police that she also felt his fist hit her on her forehead.
