Charges against a Windsor police officer were suddenly dropped Tuesday.

Windsor Police Service Const. David Bshouty was accused of trying to smuggle cocaine across the border, from Windsor into Detroit.

Apparently, whatever Bshouty was carrying when he was arrested April 12, it wasn't illegal.

At the time, authorities found what they thought was cocaine. An initial test seemed to support that theory.  But then there was a new test.

The results were revealed at a preliminary hearing. Whatever substance he was carrying was not cocaine and was not an illegal substance.

Based on that information, the prosecutor dropped the charges.

Bshouty still faces a drug charge in Windsor. It stems from a different incident. That still has to go through the courts.

In the meantime, Bshouty is still suspended with pay.
