Prosecutors have dropped charges against a restaurant owner after he and a security company supervisor shot each other with Tasers in a dispute over a parked car.

Prosecutors say the case against Harvey Epstein was weak. They also cite a weak case for the security company to have clamped a metal boot on a wheel of a van owned by one of Epstein's employees — the incident that set off the May 17 confrontation.

Epstein, co-owner of Mamacitas restaurant, was arrested on suspicion of felony menacing and using a stun gun.

Police say Epstein and Case M. Dane, a supervisor for Colorado Security Services Inc., shot each other with Tasers.

Epstein and Colorado Security Services co-owner Billy Hodge declined to comment.
