DeKalb County, Georgia, prosecutors dropped drug charges against Alphonzo Eleby after surveillance video from a gas station showed a police officer apparently planting the marijuana Eleby was charged with possessing. But prosecutors say they didn't drop the charges because of the video. They say they dropped the charges because the county police department cannot produce for trial the marijuana they allegedly found on Eleby.
