Dropping domestic assault charges.

Question Details:

Can I drop domestic assault charges? I called the police to file a report and they arrested my boyfriend without my wanting to press charges. He faces loosing everything: house, job. How can I drop charges without incriminating myself? The allegations are legitimate, but he's just had a hard time since returning from war (Iraq veteran) and needs counseling. His court date is in December and since I wasn't the one who pressed charges, I guess the state or police officer did, then even if I don't show up that won't help him. Please advise. Thanks.
