A JUDGE yesterday dismissed witness-intimidation charges against a man accused of slashing the tires of a poll watcher who had complained to officials about alleged election fraud committed by the man's family members. "I just cannot see in that video that that's what occurred," Municipal Judge Roger Gordon said of allegations that defendant Brandon Way, 31, punctured the poll watcher's tires. Gordon dismissed charges of witness retaliation, intimidation, possession of an instrument of crime - in this case, a drywall saw - and related charges at Way's preliminary hearing.

ON TUESDAY'S "Live with Kelly and Michael," host Michael Strahan talked about a 1999 game he played against the Doug Pederson -led Eagles in which he intercepted a pass and ran the ball into the end zone for a touchdown. In spectacular fashion, Strahan celebrated with a Ricky Martin -style pose. Producers later tracked down a video clip of the game with Strahan's celebration and aired it on yesterday's show. Cute, right? But that's when things went nuts. During the commercial break, former Eagle Lonnie Palelei stood up and made himself known.

British goth-pop singer Charli XCX's debut album, True Romance , shares a title with Tony Scott's Quentin Tarantino-scripted 1993 road movie. The similarity, however, is only "incidental," says the 20-year-old songwriter, who will headline Union Transfer on Saturday. "I do love that movie, and I think that Clarence and Alabama [played by Christian Slater and Patricia Arquette] are two of the best romantic heroes ever," says the singer, who hails from Hertfordshire, north of London, and whose last name is Aitchison.

When your nickname is Donnie Baseball, you better get used to the heat when the team you manage is a miserable 19-26. Dodgers skipper Don Mattingly did not make any allies (among the people most important to him in his job) when, before Wednesday's game vs. the Brewers, he questioned his team's "grit" and the bosses who saddled him with highly paid all-stars he believes don't have much of the stuff. In any case, following his blast, the Dodgers hammered the Brewers, winning, 9-2, to match their highest run total of the season.

The man who many believe is the main reason for the 76ers' disastrous season appears to be taking things in rhythmic stride. Weeks after undergoing arthroscopic surgery on both knees, Andrew Bynum can be seen treading lightly through the vigorous Gypsy dance in a 41-second video clip Cafe de Chinitas in Madrid, Spain, posted Monday on its Facebook page. Judging by his moves, the Sixers center appears to be recovering well from surgery. There's no harm in dancing on vacation.

THOUGH ex-cop Jonathan Josey was acquitted by a judge Tuesday of assaulting a woman he was filmed punching last September, the fight is still on and will only intensify, the woman's enraged attorney thundered after leaving court. "What took place today was an injustice. It was injustice to Ms. Guzman, it was an injustice to the Puerto Rican-Hispanic community," said attorney Enrique Latoison, who said he is suing Josey. His client, Aida Guzman, 40, fought back tears and declined to comment as Latoison told reporters that he also plans to ask officials at the U.S. Department of Justice to investigate the case and possibly file federal civil-rights charges against Josey, 41, who was fired after cellphone video went viral of him punching Guzman following the city's Sept.
