Judge Dismisses Felony Charge Against Aaron Boogaard

From Abby Simons at the Star Tribune:

A Hennepin County judge Thursday morning dismissed the most serious charge against the brother of former Minnesota Wild hockey player Derek Boogaard, who died of a drug overdose in May.

In a written order, Judge William Howard threw out a charge of felony third-degree sale of a controlled substance against 25-year-old Aaron Boogaard. A gross misdemeanor charge of interfering with a death scene still stands.
