    REDWOOD CITY, Calif. -- San Mateo County prosecutors have dropped misdemeanor charges against a diabetic bodybuilder who said his behavior during a scuffle with police was due to insulin shock.

    Doug Burns, 43, who holds the "Mr. Natural Universe" crown, was sprayed with Mace and wrestled to the ground by officers, who believed he was intoxicated, at a downtown movie theater in April. They arrested him for assault and resisting arrest.

    Burns maintained that he was disoriented and unaware of his actions as a result of extremely low blood sugar.

    Prosecutors initially insisted Burns needed to provide more medical evidence that he was a Type I diabetic suffering from insulin shock at the time. On Wednesday, however, Chief Deputy District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe dropped the charges.

    Burns "has a valid defense of unconsciousness that he was not aware of what he was doing at the time of the conduct," Wagstaffe said.
