VALHALLA, N.Y. (AP) — A judge has dropped all charges against four New York college football players who were arrested after a teammate was killed by a police officer.

The action was taken Thursday by a town judge in a New York suburb.

The four Pace University students were arrested Oct. 17 in the chaos that followed the shooting of 20-year-old Danroy Henry of Easton, Mass., outside a bar in Thornwood, N.Y.

Last month a grand jury declined to indict the officer who shot Henry.

Two weeks ago, prosecutors moved to dismiss various charges of disorderly conduct, obstruction and criminal mischief against the teammates.
