Kelly Lamrock, the former New Brunswick attorney general and Liberal education minister, says the charge against him of driving while his licence was suspended has been dropped.
He made the announcement on Twitter on Wednesday morning.
"So, I was at court today as the Crown dropped the [Motor Vehicle Act] charge," he tweeted.
"I share this because friends had worried."
A Fredericton provincial court employee confirmed the charge against Lamrock was withdrawn.
Lamrock told reporters after his last court appearance in Fredericton on Feb. 15 that the charge was related to a parking ticket that went unpaid because of a bureaucratic mix-up.
"While in Tunis, a missed parking ticket led to an unnoticed licence suspension," he reiterated on Twitter Wednesday.
"Independent Crown determined that I could likely show "due diligence" — didn't know of the suspension AND took steps to pay tix, monitor mail."
A special prosecutor, Stacy Ryan, was called in to handle the matter because of Lamrock's former attorney general status.
The charge against Lamrock was laid on Nov. 23, 2016.
