The Toronto Raptor charged with driving under the influence will not be facing any punishment.

Charges against Jonas Valenciunas have been dropped.

He was arrested in early April in Wasaga Beach, when Provincial Police say he was spotted allegedly driving through a fast-food drive-thru, with open beer containers in his vehicle.

Once the vehicle was found, the NBA centre was charged with having greater than 80 milligrams of alcohol in 100 millilitres of blood.

But the crown now says they don't have a reasonable prospect of conviction, and have dropped the charges.

    Isn't the above statement evidence, the cop did the breathalyser test to come up with that number in the statement ? so why no reasonable prospect of conviction?
