'127 Hours' Amputee

Off the Hook

For Alleged Domestic Violence

EXCLUSIVE

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.

Not apologizing for LOLing about this douche! This is right up there with the one-armed drummer from Def Leppard beating his wife years ago.

All the losers making fun of this man for his disability wouldn't be strong enough to do or endure what he did. I'm sure you make the same jokes about our service members who lost their limbs at war. Morons.

Huh - no evidence? The only witness to the mutual combat was an eight month old baby. Are we to assume that she admitted her assault and denied that he assaulted her. He denied his assault and implicated her. Otherwise, this makes no sense to charge and release.

Keep the hag in jail. She is a traitor to her gender, and battered women everywhere. Not much of a woman or a mother would put her hands on anyone just to get her way.
