TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Florida State cornerback and return specialist Greg Reid is no longer facing charges of resisting arrest and perjury.

Reid had been accused of lying to police to protect a friend from his hometown of Valdosta, Ga. But state prosecutors dropped the charges on Wednesday.

Police stopped the friend while he was driving Reid's scooter because it didn't have a license plate.

The friend, Rontrel Frazier, didn't have a driver's license and escaped before officers could identify him.

Meggs said when officers later questioned Reid about the driver's identity, he was less than forthcoming.

The prosecutor, though, said by that time police already knew it was Frazier.

Therefore, they didn't really need any information from Reid.
