ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV) - Criminal charges were dropped Tuesday against Tony Nguyen, chef and co-owner of Sno, a new Tower Grove South restaurant.

In September, Nguyen was charged with domestic assault in the second, third and fourth degrees, a felony charge. There was also an unlawful use of a weapon charge, a misdemeanor.

A spokesperson for the St. Louis Circuit Attorney’s office said the charges were dropped due to insufficient evidence. Their office would not comment further on the case.

According to the initial charging documents, officers found extensive bruising on the woman’s shoulders, chest, arms and face.

Nguyen and his wife and fellow co-owner Jessica Nguyen opened Sno this summer. The restaurant remains open.
