Charges against a Las Vegas man have been dismissed in response to a legal motion alleging misconduct by the prosecution.
Richard Encinias, 28, had been charged with assault with a deadly weapon, having allegedly veered his car toward that of Ben Bencomo in an attempt to run him off the road.
The motion to dismiss specifies two areas of misconduct — vindictive prosecution and withholding of exculpatory evidence, which tends to disprove guilt.
