Case dropped against Maryland RB Brown

Prosecutors have decided to drop charges against Maryland running back Wes Brown, who was accused of assaulting a police officer earlier this month.

A spokesman for the Prince George's County state attorney's office told The Associated Press that prosecutors decided to dismiss the case after reviewing the evidence before a scheduled preliminary hearing. After Brown was arrested for second-degree assault on an officer, misdemeanor theft and illegal use of wiretapping, he was suspended by the university.

A school spokesman said Tuesday morning that Brown remains suspended by the university.
