Charges dropped against pregnant Bronx teen hit by police stun gun
Charges have been dropped against the pregnant Bronx teen who was hit with a stun gun by officers.
Dramatic cellphone video caught officers shocking 17-year-old Dailene Rosario in February. 
Police were responding to a separate incident in the Wakefield building when Rosario's boyfriend started fighting with her sister's boyfriend. By the time police showed up, Rosario says her boyfriend left and she was fighting with her sister's boyfriend.
Rosario says the cops called for backup when she refused to let them inside of the apartment. She was then hit with the stun gun.
The 17-year-old, who was 14 weeks pregnant at the time, was left with puncture wounds and burn marks on her stomach.
Rosario was facing up to a year in prison for resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and harassment before the charges were dropped on Thursday.
The teen's lawyer filed a $5 million civil lawsuit against the city, on behalf of the damages Rosario endured in the ordeal.
There is no word yet on whether disciplinary actions will be taken against the officer who fired the stun gun.
