Judge drops McConaughey surf scuffle case

MALIBU, Calif. Amateur video of the June 2008 incident at Little Dume Beach shows bits of the scuffle.

The photographer says he was trying to snap pictures of /*McConaughey*/ when two men, Skylar Peak and Philip Hilderbrand attacked the photographer and threw him in the water.

A judge dismissed the case Friday, two weeks after jurors deadlocked in their trial, with a majority voting in favor of acquittal.

The dismissal was granted at the prosecution's request.
