Four men arrested after night of violence in Louisville are cleared by jury

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Four men who were arrested on a night of violence in Louisville have been cleared by a grand jury.

The Courier-Journal reported that a Jefferson County grand jury declined to indict the four on a robbery charge Tuesday.

The men, whose ages range from 18 to 21, claimed they were victims of shoddy identification procedures. Two of the men were also cleared of unlawful imprisonment, criminal mischief and assault charges in another case.

Louisville police confronted the men after a woman reported being robbed of her purse and cell phone at gunpoint on March 22.

Defense lawyer Jan Waddell said no evidence was found to link them to the case.

Police Chief Steve Conrad acknowledged officers should have searched the house for the gun, purse and cell phone.
