November 11, 2001|From Times Wire Reports

Authorities are dropping charges against all but one of the 18 firefighters arrested after a raucous protest at the World Trade Center site, said New York City Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani.

The firefighters were arrested after five police officers were injured during a Nov. 2 rally, in which firefighters protested their numbers being reduced at the site.

The one case that will not be dropped, Giuliani said, involved a firefighter accused of hitting a police officer. The other cases mostly involved criminal trespassing and harassment, he said.
