TUPELO, Miss. (AP) -- A court filing says charges have been dropped against a Mississippi man accused of sending ricin-laced letters to President Barack Obama and others.

The one-sentence document was filed Tuesday, hours after Paul Kevin Curtis was released from custody. The document says the ongoing investigation has revealed new but unspecified information.

An FBI agent had testified in court that no evidence of ricin was found at Curtis's home.

Meanwhile, authorities searched Tuesday at the home of another Mississippi man in connection with the case.

WOW! Guess we jumped the gun on that one and ruined an innocent man's reputation for the rest of his life. Usually you do all the investigating FIRST before arresting someone. Its this little thing called probable cause.
