Drug charges dropped because of unlawful stop

Posted: Updated:

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A judge has ruled that evidence obtained from an unlawful stop of a man on a bike in Lincoln can't be used against him at trial. 53-year-old Charles Sales Jr. had been facing three felonies: possessing methamphetamine with intent to deliver, possessing money while violating drug laws and resisting arrest with a prior offense. A judge tossed out the drug charges because Sales was stopped for riding his bike in a crosswalk, which isn't against the law.
