    Pats' Law Has Final Charge Dropped

    MIAMI (AP) — Prosecutors dropped a final charge Monday against New England Patriots cornerback Ty Law, who was arrested in April after he allegedly led police on a brief foot chase.

    Joel Hirschhorn, Law's attorney, said he previously discussed the case with prosecutors, who dropped the charge of disobeying a lawful command by a police officer and the traffic ticket before Monday's hearing.
    Prosecutor Jonny Mosely dismissed the remaining charge of resisting an officer without violence at the hearing. Miami-Dade County Judge Jeffrey Schwarz also agreed to return Law's $150 bond. Mosely had no comment on why the charges were dropped.

    "This is a classic case of DWB: driving while black," said Hirschhorn, who wasn't in court. "There was no basis for the arrest."

    Law, who wasn't in court Monday, was represented by Brian Bieber at the hearing.

    Law was charged with resisting without violence after Miami Beach police said the 30-year-old Pro Bowl player sped off in his Rolls-Royce after being pulled over for a lane violation.

    Police said they chased Law for about a half a block until he stopped again, and told Law to put his hands behind his back, but he pulled away and ran off.

    Police caught up with him after a short chase.

    In December 2000, Law ran into trouble when U.S. Customs officials found several Ecstasy pills in his bag after he was leaving Canada with two other players.

    Law said the drug belonged to his cousin, but paid a $700 administrative fine at the scene and was released.

    I'd be interested in hearing Mosely's explanation as to why the charge was dropped.

    What about the pending charge of "Extreme Stupidity In Hinderance to One's Own Career" he is facing in federal court for continuing to allow the Postons to represent him.

    I always thought this was BS from the start.
