A former Ball State student who allegedly choked a store clerk at a Muncie Goodwill and tried to forcibly convert people to Islam has had the charges against him dropped.
Khalid Sulaiman Bilah, 24, was charged with five counts of battery resulting in bodily injury to a police officer, three counts each of resisting law enforcement and battery resulting in bodily injury and single counts of attempted strangulation, intimidation, criminal trespass and battery back in March.

This week, Delaware County Prosecutor Eric Hoffman filed a motion to drop all charges after Bilal was deported back to his home country of Saudi Arabia.
Bilal was taken into custody by federal authorities in April. Court documents filed by the Department of Homeland Security said Bilal “showed signs of radicalization” after yelling “Allahu Akbar” when he was arrested by Muncie police.
Bilal was a student at Ball State but had his student status revoked following the incident.
