Citing insufficient evidence, Los Angeles prosecutors have suddenly dropped a murder case against professional tennis referee Lois Goodman in the death of her husband.
As the U.S. Open draws to a close in Flushing this weekend, a tennis umpire who was supposed to be on the sidelines is instead getting out of jail.
Lois Goodman, still wearing her navy-blue U.S. Open uniform, was escorted from a Manhattan courthouse Thursday by detectives with the Los Angeles Police Department.
Celebrity sightings and scandal were served up together during qualifying matches earlier in the day.
Investigators initially believed Alan Frederick Goodman had fallen down the stairs. Now they think he was bludgeoned to death with a coffee mug.
