A charge laid against Vaughan Mayor Linda Jackson’s husband for causing a drunken disturbance in a dance club has been quietly withdrawn.

 

A Crown attorney says the charge against Mario Campese was dropped last month after he completed 30 hours of community service.

 

Campese was charged with causing a disturbance while intoxicated in a public place after police were called to a dispute in a club in December 2008.

 

Police said club bouncers alleged Campese started an argument after his son was barred from entering over dress code issues.

Campese, who fell on ice and injured himself as he was escorted from the club by police, was released after several hours in custody.

Campese and Jackson are also both facing Election Act charges for alleged spending violations during the 2006 election.
