A judge on Monday dismissed an accusation that a Detroit deputy police chief violated a personal protection order involving a 28-year-old woman during a May 5 traffic stop.

Wayne County Circuit Judge Carole Youngblood found insufficient evidence to bring criminal charges against Deputy Chief Robert Dunlap, 38.

The woman, who referred to Dunlap as her former boyfriend, had obtained a personal protection order against Dunlap 10 days earlier.

She said she went to Dunlap's Detroit home with two friends to serve him with the order around 10 p.m. May 5, while she waited in the car.

She alleged that shortly after leaving his home, Dunlap pulled them over. Four marked police cars and one unmarked SUV responded to the stop as backup.

The woman and her friends were released about a half-hour later with no citation.

The woman's attorney, Craig Nemier, said it's common for people to use friends to serve personal protection orders to avoid the cost of a process server.

Monday's hearing came down to whether Dunlap knew he was being served with a personal protection order before following the group.

Prosecutors withdrew from the case after they said Terone Dunbar, one of the woman's friends, told them last week that when he handed over the documents, he called them "court papers," not a protection order.
