(AP) — A toxicology report released Friday shows the blood-alcohol level for an unarmed man fatally shot by a Charlotte police officer was below the legal limit. The attorney for the family of Jonathan Ferrell says the report confirms that the 24-year-old former Florida A&M football player wasn’t drunk the night of the September shooting. The report also shows there were no illegal drugs in his system. Chris Chestnut said Ferrell was just trying to get help after he was injured in a car accident.
