VALE – Malheur County Circuit Court Judge Lung Hung on Thursday dismissed a restraining order filed by a local woman against Ontario City Councilor  Freddy Rodriguez, finding that she didn’t prove she had been abused and remained in imminent danger from him.

The woman, a former girlfriend, obtained the protective order Jan. 25, describing what she said was an assault in her Ontario home. According to her sworn testimony and documents submitted to the court, Rodriguez entered her home demanding the keys to a truck he wanted to move. When the woman refused to give him the keys, she claimed, Rodriguez pinned her against an antique hutch . . .
