LATEST: R+B singer Kelis plans to sue police after a judge cleared her of charges of disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.
The Milkshake hitmaker was held in March last year (07) and accused of shouting abuse at two undercover police officers in Miami, Florida.
But the case will not go to trial, as Judge Antonio Arzola threw out the charges on Friday (12Sep08) after ruling there was no evidence against the star.
Now she plans to launch a legal action against Miami Beach Police for unlawful arrest and violation of her human rights.
Kelis' lawyer Ira Loewy tells E! News website, "The only basis for granting her a judgment acquittal is if there's no evidence whatsoever a jury could find her guilty.
"In this case, you can't arrest someone for questioning police authority or protesting an action. She was engaged in a constitutionally protected right to protest this police action."
The lawyer added: "We'll draft a civil rights complaint and hopefully get this filed within the next few weeks or couple of months.
"She was detained illegally, and her rights under the Fourth and First Amendment were violated. She was slandered by the police press releases that came out. It was totally given out to attack her reputation... and was totally false."
