Puerto Rican rapper/singer Don Omar received a reprieve in his domestic abuse case on Monday (29Sep14) when a judge modified the terms of his house arrest.

The Dale Don Dale hitmaker was taken into custody in Puerto Rico amid allegations he threatened his 26-year-old partner Rebeca Lopez at a home in the Vega Alta neighbourhood last month (Sep14).

He was subsequently slapped with multiple counts of domestic violence and weapons charges and was released on $600,000 (£375,000) bail.

Omar was also placed on house arrest, but on Monday a judge ruled he would be able to leave his home from 7am to 8pm Monday through Saturday, but he would have to remain inside every Sunday.

Lopez was not present at the hearing, but she has indicated she has no plans to pursue legal action against Omar, suggesting the incident has been blown out of proportion.

However, prosecutors are still pursuing the case stating, "The interest of the state is to continue with the case."

The next court hearing is scheduled for 14 October (14).
