COLONIAL HEIGHTS, VA (WWBT) - The assault and battery charge against a Richmond-area gymnastics coach has been “nolle prosequi,” or set aside.

Benjamin David Jones was originally arrested Jan. 10 by Colonial Heights police and charged with aggravated sexual battery.

That charge was later amended to assault and battery, and then set aside in August.
