 TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) -A long-running marijuana possession case against NBA player Damon Stoudamire has been dismissed.
Stoudamire's Tucson lawyer said Friday all charges have been dismissed with prejudice and cannot be refiled.
The misdemeanor possession case took more than 4 1/2 years to conclude, including two appeals to the Arizona Supreme Court.
Under a settlement agreement with the Pima County Attorney's office, Stoudamire successfully completed a drug rehabilitation program and urine tests proving he was drug-free.
Stoudamire, now with the San Antonio Spurs, was arrested in July 2003 after a foil packet containing a half-ounce of marijuana allegedly fell from his pants while he was going through security at Tucson's airport.
Deputy Pima County Attorney Bruce Chalk did not return a call immediately.
