ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Prosecutors are dropping a criminal case against a former Albuquerque high school athletic director who was accused of planting drug paraphernalia in a coach’s office to frame him.

KRQE-TV (https://goo.gl/yQP80X ) reports that prosecutors on Wednesday asked a judge to dismiss charges against Tom Knauber, the former athletic director of Sandia High School.

Prosecutors and defense attorney Jason Bowles both said surveillance video that showed Knauber entering coach Alvin Broussard’s office with something in his hands didn’t prove that Knauber actually planted drug paraphernalia.

The District Attorney’s Office said the video was possible circumstantial evidence but that it was appropriate to dismiss the case because the video didn’t prove the case beyond a reasonable doubt.
