CAMDEN, N.J. (CBS) — The former police chief in Bordentown Township will not face a third trial for hate crime charges.

Prosecutors decided to drop the charges against Frank Nucera Jr.

He was accused of slamming a handcuffed Black suspect’s head into a door jamb during an arrest back in 2016.

Nucera’s first two trials ended in mistrials.
