Vanilla's Battery Case -- Iced, Iced Baby!

4/29/2008 12:21 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has just learned that domestic battery charges against Vanilla Ice have been dropped -- completely.

Ice -- real name Robert Van Winkle -- is a free man after the April 10 incident, in which he allegedly kicked and hit his wife Laura. According to the court order, Laura recanted her statement and there were no independent witnesses to the battery, so the case got tossed. We're also told that one witness who did come forward said the incident was only verbal.

The Iceman -- repped by power attorneys Bradford Cohen and Joe Lorusso -- also won't have to stay away from wife Laura, as the no contact orders have been pulled.

Sounds like a classic case of domestic violence. He wooed her with promises it would never happen again and she gave in. That's what it sounds like to me. Let's just tell it how it is!

The Journal of the American Medical Association: The strong correlation between homicide as a leading killer of women of child-bearing age, the rates of homicide among pregnant and recently pregnant women, and the rates of homicides perpetrated by intimate partners, indicates that those women who are pregnant or have recently reached the end of pregnancy may be at a higher risk for partner violence, which at times will be lethal.

Let's hope she isn't or wasn't recently pregnant.
