Charges were dropped in December in connection with an Aug. 28 knife fight at Emeritus at Vickery Towers, a senior citizens complex in the Lower Greenville area.
One man in his 70s suffered a severed thumb and other injuries and another in his 60s was stabbed in his chest. Both were initially charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
An elevator and a hallway were stained red after the bloody attack.
Both were released from the Lew Sterrett Criminal Justice Center.
The younger of the two men was on parole due a 20-plus-year sentence for shooting a police officer.
