A development in the case of protesters arrested in Ferguson, Missouri last year.

FOX's Lilian Woo reports:

They were arrested during a protest like this one in Ferguson... Common after the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown by an officer.

Now charges dropped against six activists just as their trial was set to begin. The case was expected to include allegations of police brutality claims of missing evidence and discussions about problems with body cameras.

The charges which included property damage, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct, and third-degree assault were dismissed without explanation according to the St. Louis Post Dispatch.
