TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - The Tucson City Prosecutor's Office dismissed all criminal charges Friday against University of Arizona football player Ka'Deem Carey.

According to Tucson City Prosecutor Baird Greene, a key witness for the prosecution is unavailable, and there is no substantial likelihood a judge would convict Carey of the charges given the evidence.

Carey had multiple charges against him stemming from a domestic violence dispute on last December, according to Sgt. Chris Widmer with Tucson Police.

In a restraining order that was issued against Carey, it says Carey entered a room to obtain a lighter to use illegal substances. When the plaintiff, Carey's ex-girlfriend Marissa Rambow, asked Carey to leave the room, he pushed hs way in and knocked her to the floor, according to a written statement by Rambow. 

In a separate restraining order issued by Carey against Rambow, Carey wrote that Rambow was putting hands on him and threatening to harm his football career. 

The Tucson City Prosecutor's office is not contemplating re-filing any charges at a later date.
