WICHITA, Kan. (AP) Prosecutors in Sedgwick County have dropped drug charges against former heavyweight boxing champion Tommy Morrison, less than a year after unrelated drug charges were dismissed in Emporia.
The Wichita Eagle reports the Sedgwick County charges were dropped Tuesday, the same day Morrison faced a court hearing.
The Oklahoma native was arrested in March 2010 outside a Wichita fitness club and later charged with possessing marijuana and drug paraphernalia.
Morrison had told The Eagle he often sat in his car reading the Bible before going into the club to lift weights. He said his car had items from a recent move, including a box containing a pipe that police said bore marijuana residue.
The Emporia charges were dismissed after a state trooper who arrested Morrison died in a motorcycle accident.
