The district attorney's office dropped charges Friday against a man who claimed he was assaulted by three deputies outside a Wake County restaurant in August.

Robert Wise told investigators Katie Broda, Kevin Hinton and Christopher Roth assaulted him in the parking lot of a Garner Applebee's on Aug. 26, because they did not like the way he parked.

Broda, Hinton and Roth resigned from the Wake County Sheriff's Office shortly after the incident. The three former deputies were indicted earlier in December on charges of misdemeanor assault.

Wise was cited for assaulting the officers during the scuffle, but he was not arrested.
