BOBBITT FREE AS OFFICIALS CUT SHORT . . . HIS SENTENCE

John Wayne Bobbitt got out of a Las Vegas jail three days early when his 15-day sentence for beating his former fiancee was cut short for good behavior. But he may be going back.

Bobbitt, who was released on Monday, had been convicted of domestic battery for beating Kristina Elliott in July. He faces trial Sept. 26 on the same charge - this time for striking the 21-year-old former topless dancer in May.Bobbitt accused Elliott of trumping up the charges to further her modeling career.

In addition to receiving 15 days in jail, Bobbitt, 27, was placed on six months probation and ordered to undergo therapy and attend Alcoholics Anonymous meetings. His divorce from Lorena, who severed his penis, is still pending.
