'127 Hours' Amputee

Off the Hook

For Alleged Domestic Violence

EXCLUSIVE

1209-aron-ralston-01

Just like the time he was removed from the boulder ... Aron Ralston is now a free man -- and even better for him, the charges for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend have been dropped.

TMZ has learned the case against Aron -- the real-life inspiration for the movie "127 Hours" -- has been dismissed ... and we're told it's because prosecutors determined they didn't have enough evidence to convict him.

However, Aron's girlfriend Vita Shannon is still facing two criminal charges for allegedly assaulting Aron in front of their 8-month-old child.

Aron was released around 1pm today ... but his girlfriend Vita is still in custody with a $550 bond.

Honestly, while I'm happy he's alive, there's something to questions about someone who can sever their own limb, view it, and still sing "rainbows and lollipops". He look's crazy, his eyes say it all.

Longer to hack his arm off than for the PA to review the case.

Prosecution didn't have a leg to stand on and didn't have the b@lls so they had to cut him loose. Good for Aron, noone likes being between a rock and a hard place.
