"Bouncer who slapped woman on F train said he’d apologize for smack as prosecutors ruled he acted in self-defense "

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.
