TMZ has learned the criminal case against Dourdan's girlfriend, Maria Asis del Alamo, was dismissed today. Turns out the whole thing was a big misunderstanding.
Seems Gary and Maria were having a good time in a Venice, CA home, when a nosy neighbor mistook passion for violence. The cops came and, despite Gary's protests, they arrested Maria after noticing a scratch on Gary's neck.
Prosecutors now realize it was the sound of love, so the case has gone bye-bye.
As for Gary, he's been sober for more than a year, has a beautiful GF, is in love, and knows how to show it. Not a bad turnaround.
