GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Grand Rapids Police are dropping the investigation into an alleged incident where a young girl was duct-taped in the backseat of a Buick at a gas station this afternoon.

Police are looking into the incident further, but say that no charges will be filed at this time and the girl in question is fine.
