MUSCLE SHOALS, AL (WAFF) -

There will be no new trial for Greg Scoggins.

He's the former Muscle Shoals Policeman who was accused of shooting deer from his patrol car on federal property. Scoggins was acquitted of reckless endangerment charges, but convicted of hunting without a license.

Friday's ruling let that conviction stand.

Scoggins was released from the police department after he was arrested.
