SUPERIOR, Wis. (AP) - A judge has dismissed a charge against a woman whose arrest was captured on police dash cam video in Superior.

WDIO-TV (https://bit.ly/1wNu8zh) reports at a hearing Friday, Judge Kelly Thimm approved a motion to dismiss a misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge against Natasha Lancour. Prosecutors had originally charged Lancour with felony battery of an officer but later downgraded the charge.

Lancour alleged the police officer used excessive force in arresting her in January. Last week, a special prosecutor announced that Officer George Gothner would not face criminal charges in the arrest.

Gothner remains on administrative duty while the Superior Police Department considers disciplinary action.
