Charges against San Gabriel mayor dropped

SAN GABRIEL, Calif. Lu Chen is no longer in the U.S. and prosecutors can't file charges because they can't reach her.

Former Mayor Albert Huang, 35, had been charged with robbery and battery after he was arrested for driving at high speeds with Chen hanging off his car.

Police say the pair had had an argument and Huang took off with her purse and keys.

Huang maintained his innocence but resigned as mayor in October.
