A trial spectator who was arrested after mouthing an expletive toward convicted wife killer Drew Peterson, has a chance to wipe the incident from his record.
A special prosecutor has agreed to drop charges against Cincinnati restaurateur Jeff Ruby if he stays out of trouble for four months, according to the Chicago Tribune.
Ruby, a vocal critic of Peterson's defense team during the trial and a self-proclaimed victims' advocate, was charged with indirect contempt of court after the August incident.
Ruby said at the time that he "really thought about giving him [Peterson] a mouth full of missing teeth."
Ruby has also previously offered $100,000 for finding Stacy Peterson's body.
