TUCUMCARI -- A New Mexico State Police officer who had been charged with felony child abuse and misdemeanor domestic violence had his child abuse charges dropped Thursday morning by a Magistrate judge in Quay County.

Judge Joel Garnett said he found no probably cause existed to support the child abuse charges against Isaac Vigil, according to a press release from Vigil's attorney, Kirk Chavez.

The charges stemmed from an August 14 incident in which Vigil allegedly assaulted his live-in girlfriend at his home.

The misdemeanor domestic violence is still pending.
