OKLAHOMA CITY -- A clerk for an Oklahoma County judge says felony domestic violence charges against former Oklahoma City Thunder guard DeAndre Liggins have been dropped.

Defense attorney Tony Coleman said Wednesday that prosecutors are expected to refile the charge as a single misdemeanor count of domestic abuse. Coleman declined further comment.

Liggins was originally charged with two counts of kidnapping, two counts of domestic assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, three counts of domestic abuse in the presence of a minor and one count of violating a protective order. He was arrested Aug. 31 after his girlfriend told police he attacked her in front of their 2-year-old son.

Liggins now plays for the Sioux Falls Skyforce of the NBA Development League.
