Football star Garry O’Connor has been found not guilty of a fraudulent £93,500 insurance claim.
The former Hibs player was cleared of the charge that he made a false claim after a crash in Gullane, East Lothian, involving his Ferrari in April last year.
The 29-year-old was on trial at Haddington Sheriff Court for falsely claiming he was behind the wheel and attempting to defraud Aviva insurance of £93,500.
The supercar, worth more than £100,000 brand new, had to be written off.
On Friday, the prosecutor said she would not provide any more evidence and Sheriff Peter Braid said that Mr O’Connor was free to go.
A Crown Office spokeswoman said: "It is the duty of the Crown to keep cases under review.
"After full and careful consideration of the evidence led in this case, it was determined that there was now insufficient evidence to prove the offence beyond reasonable doubt.
"The Crown has therefore intimated to the court that this case is withdrawn."
