Minnesota cut ties with Davis after gun found in car

MINNEAPOLIS -- A weapons charge against former University of
Minnesota men's basketball recruit James Davis has been dismissed.

Davis, a 7-footer who played at Minneapolis North High School,
was released from his scholarship letter of intent nearly two
months ago. He's expected to attend a junior college in the fall.

Last week, a Hennepin County district judge ruled that a March
police stop in which a gun was found inside a car Davis was sitting
in was invalid for lack of probable cause. The charge, a gross
misdemeanor, was dropped.
