Domestic violence charges against ’127 Hours’ amputee dismissed

Aron Ralston, who became famous for amputating his forearm in an ordeal portrayed in the film 127 Hours, was jailed following a weekend domestic dispute with his girlfriend in Colorado. Denver authorities dismissed assault charges against him Monday.

Ralston, and girlfriend Vita Shannon, both 38, were arrested and jailed Sunday for domestic violence and “wrongs to minors” after Shannon allegedly struck Ralston and he shoved her. Charging documents say they were arguing. The couple have an 8-week-old daughter who was at the couple’s home.
