The 28-year-old appeared before Sunshine Magistrates Court on Wednesday, via a video link and seated next to his two lawyers, and appeared to become emotional when a police prosecutor applied for the charges to be withdrawn.

The police prosecutor did not outline why the charges were to be dropped.

Magistrate Kay Robertson granted the police application and struck out the charges.
