George Hanna was released Tuesday
after a drug warrant from Maryland was
dropped.

Baltimore police had linked Hanna
to the drugs after finding his name on

an envelope near a small amount of
cocaine and marijuana.

Hanna's lawyer says they still
don't know *WHY* the charges were
dropped.

He believes it's because the case
is two-years-old with weak evidence.

Regardless, Hanna says he's glad
to be out and credits God with his

Though Brownie never bit anyone,
he was accused of being a dangerous dog

Brownie's lawyer talked with the

Brownie was released, as long as
