HONOLULU (AP) - Prosecutors have said they won't pursue drug possession charges against former University of Hawaii star quarterback Colt Brennan from his July arrest.
Prosecuting Attorney Keith Kaneshiro said in a statement that the decision was made based on a recent Hawaii Supreme Court opinion and other similar court decisions on drug possession and the intent to possess.
A plastic packet containing cocaine residue was found in Brennan's rented car after a police officer pulled him over for speeding in Kailua. Brennan was arrested for driving under the influence, and a police report said he had a blood-alcohol level of 0.17 percent.
Kaneshiro said prosecutors couldn't have proven beyond a reasonable doubt that the plastic packet belonged to Brennan, who still faces charges of operating a vehicle under the influence of an intoxicant.
