Milwaukee judge dismisses Williams' drug citation


MILWAUKEE (AP) -- A Milwaukee County judge has dismissed a citation against former talk show host Montel Williams for possessing drug paraphernalia.

Sheriff's deputies found a pipe commonly used for marijuana on Williams during a security check at the Milwaukee airport in January. Williams paid the $484 citation but he disputed the ticket.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel says a judge dismissed the case Tuesday at the district attorney's request. The pipe tested negative for marijuana.

Williams told the newspaper he is thankful that he can put the episode behind him.

He says he uses marijuana legally to relieve the chronic pain caused by multiple sclerosis. Williams visits Wisconsin to participate in experimental treatment at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
