Guam - Superior Court Judge Michael Bordallo dismissed a criminal case against Police Officer Burt Carbullido.  A civil compromise between Levonne Aube and Carbullido was reached over an incident that occurred in June 2008. 

Aube alleged he had been assaulted by Carbullido, who was off-duty at the time.  The incident was recorded on a mobile phone.  Carbullido pleaded not guilty to assault at the time. According to the compromise, both parties met and resolve their differences and asked that the case be dismissed.

The Attorney General's Office, however, opposed the dismissal arguing it would not be in the interest of justice to throw the case out as the government believes Carbullido committed an assault.  Still, the judge \reviewed the civil compromise and granted the dismissal.
