MIAMI (AP) -- Prosecutors in Miami are dropping all charges against New Orleans Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma.
Authorities announced their decision in court Wednesday. Vilma was arrested last month on a felony charge of resisting arrest with violence and misdemeanor counts of reckless driving and obstruction of justice. Prosecutors did not immediately give a reason for dropping the case.
Attorney Michael Tein (TEEN) says his client is relieved and is looking forward to focusing on football again.
Vilma will be a free agent this winter but has said he would prefer to stay in New Orleans. He played every defensive snap and led the Saints in tackles in his first season with New Orleans after spending his first four years with the New York Jets.
