ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Accused cop killer Davon Lymon is no longer facing charges in a separate case.

Lymon was charged with aggravated battery for a brawl in downtown Albuquerque in 2014.

A cellphone was rolling, showing Lymon as one of several men holding a man down while he was kicked, punched and left on the street.

According to the DA the case was dismissed at the request of both the U.S. Attorney Office and the New Mexico Attorney General. Both agencies claim that pursuing the case could have a negative impact on his upcoming murder trial in the death of Officer Daniel Webster.

Lymon is currently serving a 20-year sentence in Colorado for federal gun and drug charges and the DA says transporting him to Albuquerque has also been a challenge.
