Missouri lawmaker ends restraining order after alleged fight

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) – A Missouri lawmaker has dropped a restraining order he had obtained against a colleague with whom he says he got into a fistfight.

Representative Courtney Allen Curtis confirmed Friday that he had dropped the action against Rep. Michael Butler.

Curtis says Butler swung at him outside a union reception over a dispute on a contested right-to-work bill. Butler wasn’t immediately available for comment Friday.

Both Curtis and Butler are St. Louis-area Democrats.

Curtis was the only Democrat to vote in September in favor of enacting right-to-work legislation that would have banned mandatory union fees.
