After speaking out of turn at a meeting about the new federal Common Core school standards, Robert Small of Ellicott City was hit with charges that could have put him in jail for 10 years — second degree assault and disturbing a school function. Now the Baltimore County State’s Attorney Scott Shellenberger has dropped both charges.

Shellenberger maintained that the officer who escorted Smalls out of the meeting “did have probable cause to make an arrest on both charges,” despite the moment when Smalls allegedly assaulted the officer being absent from the video footage and “no one in the audience [seeing] Small shove the officer.”
