“There is no evidence of cocaine possession, usage or impairment which indicates and is very important for Dr. Monteleone for everyone to know that there was no conduct which would have compromised any patient care with regard to this matter,” Bob Del Greco, Monteleone’s attorney, told KDKA-TV in March.

Today, two charges of possession of a controlled substance were dismissed. A charge of disorderly conduct was moved to “non-traffic.”
