Former tennis player Jennifer Capriati, who was accused of punching ex-boyfriend Ivan Brannan at a gym on Valentine's Day last year and stalking him for months before that, had charges against her dropped after serving 30 hours of community service, according to the Associated Press.

Capriati did her community service at a Tampa hospital and underwent four hours of anger management under a deferred prosecution agreement, according to a spokesman for the Palm Beach County state attorney's office.
