BANCROFT, Ont. — The lawyer for Toronto Star columnist Rosie DiManno says an assault charge against her has been withdrawn.

William Watson says the charge against his client was dropped after she entered into a peace bond.

He says the terms include keeping the peace and “be of good behaviour,” with no other conditions.

Ontario Provincial Police alleged an assault occurred on July 13 in Wollaston Township, Ont., about 230 kilometres east of Toronto.

They said DiManno and the alleged victim were visiting Wollaston when the incident happened.
