my girlfriend and i got into a fight. I hit her. we made up and are back together. can she just drop the charges

That's a question I'm asked a lot. And the truth is no. Once a crime is reported to the police and an arrest made the victim is actually a state witness. They have no power to insist that the charges be dropped. They can however, as the state attorney's office to drop the charges and that will be considered.
