Carl Woods' 'threatening behaviour' charge after row with Katie Price is DROPPED as he says he’s ‘relieved’ | The Sun

CARL Woods' threatening behaviour charge following a row with Katie Price has been DROPPED, The Sun can reveal.

The 33-year-old, who is engaged to the ex glamour model, is said to be "relieved" after a lack of evidence meant his trial was scrapped.

Carl was charged with using threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour following an incident in August last year.

Colchester Magistrates' Court heard he had "tried to force his way into a house after rowing with Katie and shouting in the street".

Carl appeared in court back in March, where, supported by his fiancé, he pleaded not guilty.

The groom-to-be was granted unconditional bail and was due to begin his trial on Thursday.

But The Sun can reveal the case has since been scrapped – because there was "no longer a realistic prospect of conviction".

A source close to Carl said: "Carl is relieved to finally have his name cleared.

"The case really put huge amounts of pressure on him.

"Those close to Carl continued to support him throughout the process and everyone is relieved to hear the news."

They added: "He is now more determined than ever to seek justice against those who contributed towards falsely accusing him."

Prosecutor Leigh Hart told the court back in March the defendant got into "an argument with his partner" at home.

“This resulted in his partner leaving his property to go to another property," Mr Hart said.

He added: “The defendant followed her and attempted to force the door of that property and was heard shouting outside in the street which was overheard by neighbours.”

Defending, Mark Davies told the court the incident was “nothing more than a squabble”. 

But if found guilty, Carl could have been sentenced to a maximum of six months in prison. 

Today, a spokesperson for the CPS said: “The CPS has an obligation to keep cases under continuous review.
