Charges Dropped for Man Distributing Religious Pamphelts



Charges against a Lincoln man for handling out religious pamphlets outside the Pinnacle Bank arena have been dropped. 77-year-old Larry Ball was arrested March 15 for handing out literature during the state basketball tournament. Ball was arrested after he refused a request from arena security to leave. He claimed he was on public property. The city attorney's office says the charges were dismissed because Ball had no criminal record, and had not been back to the arena since the arrest. The American Civil Liberties union was representing Ball and helping him fight the charges.
