TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — A man who can’t use his arms because of a spinal condition has had a New Jersey gun possession charge against him dropped.
The Trentonian reports prosecutors dismissed charges against Marcus Hubbard last week, citing a lack of evidence.
Authorities say Hubbard and three other men were in a car that ran a red light in Trenton last summer and had a stolen handgun in a seatback pocket. All four men were charged after none of them took responsibility for the gun.
Hubbard spent four months in jail. The Salem resident injured his spine in a car accident and may have Lou Gehrig’s disease. His lawyer called the gun possession charge shocking.
One of the men in the car pleaded guilty to receiving stolen property in January. Charges against the others also were dismissed.
