Judge tosses charges against pot activist

By  | 

DENVER (AP) Marijuana activist Robert Corry has been acquitted of charges he destroyed property after a Denver County judge made a rare ruling to overturn the jury's guilty verdict.

Corry was arrested in June after he allegedly smashed in the window of a recreational vehicle while riding a motorcycle and being loud. The 46-year-old was arrested on suspicion of felony menacing and criminal mischief, but eventually was charged with lesser counts of destruction of private property and disturbing the peace.

According to the Denver Post, the owner of the RV testified that he did not see the incident and thought it was an accident.
