Auburn Police Capt. Thomas L. Stofer, a spokesman, had no knowledge of the charge being dropped.
The elder Carter used Facebook to tell the story of how his son was wrongly arrested after his daughter and son had been racially harassed by two Auburn football players.
He wrote on Facebook: “Reese Dismukes and another person named Patrick [Miller] approach them in an aggressive manner. Calling my Daughter a ‘Bitch’ and ‘Nigger.’ My son took offense to their aggression and they said they would crush him like they just crushed a CD that was placed on a table.”
He said that the two football players were let go and his son, Kenya, was sent to jail for disorderly conduct. Dismukes is considered one of the best football players in the conference.
The elder Carter has also said that Dismukes has denied to Auburn officials using the N-word.
Auburn University has not returned a call to comment.
