(AP) — Chinese authorities have dropped charges against an American college student who was arrested and detained in the Asian nation a week ago after reportedly injuring a taxi driver who was roughing up his mother in a fare dispute, a U.S. lawmaker said Sunday.Guthrie's home, the 25-year-old student's mother, Jennifer McLean, wrote in an email to Daines' office.Daines and U.S. Sen. Jon Tester, a Montana Democrat, had argued McLean's detention was unjustified because he was defending his mother, who is deaf, when he reportedly pushed the taxi driver to the ground during a June 10 altercation in Zhengzhou.The college student majoring in East Asian studies was detained five weeks later, on July 16, on charges of intentional injury.
