COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - Prosecutors are no longer pursuing the case against a man who filmed officers pulling him from a vehicle and patting down his handcuffed brother during a stop over a cracked windshield.

The Colorado Springs Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/1PBkMyd) 4th Judicial District Attorney’s Office spokeswoman Lee Richards said prosecutors moved to dismiss the case because no one was injured and the brother pleaded guilty to lacking compulsory insurance and having an obstructed view due to a cracked windshield.

She noted that officers had probable cause to arrest Ryan Brown, whose YouTube video of the incident has generated more than 154,000 views.

Attorneys defending Brown on behalf of the American Civil Liberties Union said he committed no crime.

An investigation cleared Colorado Springs police officer David Nelson of wrongdoing in the stop.
