ALEXANDRIA, VA. - Prince William County prosecutors failed to prove probable cause in the arson case against a former cab driver who was released from a mental hospital last year after being found not guilty by reason of insanity for the 2013 shooting of Alexandria police officer Peter Laboy.

Kashif Bashir was charged in February with one count of arson and two counts of attempted arson, which are felonies, as well as two misdemeanor counts of an acquitted insane person in possession of a gun.

Charging documents allege Bashir set one fire and attempted to set another fire at the homes of two mental health professionals.
