He’s no longer behind the 8-ball.
Prosecutors have dropped all charges against Jorge Pena, the 6-foot-6 bouncer arrested for slapping a woman during a subway melee.
But the 25-year-old is willing to apologize for the blow — even though it was in self-defense.
“A man is never supposed to hit a girl,” said the part-time bouncer whose unique 8-ball jacket caught the eye of his assailants.
“She put me in a position that I had no choice. She tried to kill me,” he said, of the subway fracas that broke out on the F train around 4:20 a.m. on Saturday and became a viral video sensation on the Internet.
