Charges are being dropped against the three black teens who were arrested while waiting where their coach told them to be for a bus to take them to a scrimmage, according to Rochester's News 8.
Monroe County District Attorney Sandra Doorley passed along the decision Tuesday morning.
Doorley told News 8 in a brief text message the charges would be dropped. She is in a meeting and we haven't been able to get further comment. Yesterday, Police Chief James Sheppard said he would let the matter play out in court. He did not say he was concerned with the arrests.
Police said they told the teens to disperse and arrested them when they wouldn't.
The teen's coach Jacob Scott, also a guidance counselor, was upset his team had to see the arrests play out and see him be threatened with arrest as well.
