I was charged with assault and battery against a family or household member, but that person no longer wishes to pursue the case. Now what?

Imagine the following scenario - two people, in a passionate on-again, off-again relationship, are having a Friday date night. Both have had a few glasses of wine, and they get into a heated argument about an ex-girlfriend. The female snatches the male's cell phone to see if he has been speaking with the ex. The male reaches for the phone, but instead grabs the female's wrist. Instinctively, she slaps him; and, in response, he pushes her. She falls to the ground and, on the way, hits her cheek on the coffee table. She throws the phone at him, but it hits the wall and breaks into several pieces. She then runs into the bedroom, locks the door and calls the police.
