In an action stemming from an allegedly unlawful arrest brought under 42 U.S.C sec. 1983, district court judgment is affirmed where plaintiff failed to establish the existence of a genuine issue of material fact concerning whether the officer had probable cause to arrest him for battery, and probable cause is an absolute bar to a 42 U.S.C sec. 1983 claim for false arrest.
