Misdemeanor charges against Lexington-Fayette Urban County Councilwoman Tayna Fogle were dismissed Tuesday.

A special-appointed prosecutor from Scott County asked Fayette District Judge Lindsay Hughes Thurston to dismiss the charges against Fogle for lack of evidence. The special prosecutor was appointed to review the case because Fogle is an elected official.

“I feel vindicated,” said Fogle as she stood with various supporters after Tuesday’s hearing in Fayette District Court.

Fogle was arrested in March after police responded to a disturbance at the AT&T store on Richmond Road, according to a citation.
