Charges dropped in ice-theft case

“Cooler heads have prevailed in a dispute over a cup of ice taken from a New Jersey college cafeteria,” as AP puts it. Disorderly conduct charges have been dropped against Cedric Calero, an 18-year-old freshman at Brookdale Community College, who took a cup of ice without payment.

Calero says he didn’t realize he was supposed to pay — there was no sign on the machine — and offered to pay the 50-cent charge when the manager accused him of stealing. But the manager called the police.
