(LOUISVILLE, Ky.) - Charges have been dropped against a Libertarian congressional candidate from Indiana who was arrested in Louisville after an alleged struggle over his phone during a September traffic stop.

Russell Brooksbank says he feels that "justice was served."

Brooksbank had been charged with traffic violation of failing to signal and assaulting a police officer. An arrest report said Brooksbank was stopped after making a rude gesture to a passing Kentucky State trooper. Brooksbank's campaign had denied that he made an inappropriate gesture.

The traffic case was dismissed Monday after the assault charge was dismissed earlier this month.

Brooksbank is running for the 9th congressional district seat against Democrat Shelli Yoder and Republican Trey Hollingsworth.
