2:49 PM PT -- 9/27 -- Carlson's dodged a bullet as far as his criminal domestic violence case ... a spokesperson for the L.A. City Attorney's Office tells TMZ his case has been referred to a City Attorney Office hearing. This almost always includes a meeting with the individual advising them to stay out of trouble ... and sometimes includes a required course like anger management.
Selma Blairand her ex-boyfriend have dropped the civil restraining orders they have against each other, but Selma is still cooperating with prosecutors in the criminal case against ex Ron Carlson.
According to new legal docs, obtained by TMZ, Selma and Ron each dismissed their civil restraining orders against each other. On the surface, this may look like they've made peace, but far from it. Ron was arrested for domestic violence and the L.A. City Attorney has the case. When Ron was arrested, a criminal protective order was put in place where Ron could have no contact with Selma. That expired March 1st.
TMZ broke the story ... Selma beelined it to court back in March and got a temporary order of protection against Ron, claiming he attacked her, on the heels of his arrest for felony domestic violence with corporal injury.
Not long after Selma got a temporary restraining order against him, Ron got a TRO of his own ... claiming Selma was the aggressor during the incident. He said she struck his eye with her arm and scratched his nose, eyes and cheeks. Ron denied attacking her and claimed self-defense.
