Charges Dropped Against UVA Student for ABC Bust Mistake

Posted: Updated:

Charges against a University of Virginia student have been dropped after she was arrested because ABC agents mistook bottled water for beer.

The incident has sparked a lot of outrage towards the agency and the governor's office.

On April 11, 20-year-old Elizabeth Daly bought a case of water, cookie dough, and ice cream at a Charlottesville store.

As she was walking to her car, several undercover ABC agents confronted her.

She panicked, and two agents say she grazed them with her SUV as she was trying to get away.

Prosecutors have dropped the charges against Daly, and the ABC is reviewing the case.
