PITTSBURGH (NewsRadio 1020 KDKA) – Charges were dropped today against the woman involved in the violent altercation at an Uptown pizza shop earlier this year.

The confrontation between 34-year-old Jade Martin and Pizza Milano manager Mahmut Yilmaz resulted in charges of defiant trespassing and disorderly conduct against Martin. Assault charges were filed against Yilmaz, who is seen tackling Martin and repeatedly hitting her head against the ground in a viral video of the incident.

Martin's lawyers say she has not been able to work since the incident and is still recovering from her injuries.

She is suing Yilmaz, who was fired from his job at Pizza Milano and will stand trial on the assault charges.
