Suffolk County prosecutors dropped charges against a Watertown man who was arrested Friday when he wore an “ammo belt” made from fake bullets when he got onto an MBTA bus.

Kevin Young, 26, appeared in Brighton District Court Monday facing charges of unlawful possession of ammunition, unlawfully carried dangerous weapon and disorderly conduct. Those charges were dismissed, however, according to a WBZ News report.

Prosecutors determined the ammunition “could not and weren’t intended to be fired,” according to the WBZ report.

Passengers on the bus which Young boarded in Brighton called 911 fearing that he might have a gun (see more here). The belt, however, was made of 69 fake military style bullets.
