The case against a man accused of carjacking a group of football players has been dismissed.

Police say last August, Angelo Martinez tried to carjack four teen boys with a fake gun after football practice but the boys fought back.

When police arrived Martinez tried to turn it around saying he was attacked.

Thursday morning, Judge Cindy Leos dismissed the case finding Martinez incompetent and unable to stand trial.

Officials say despite Thursday’s hearing, the case can be refiled in the future.

They are now looking at a request to get him mental health treatment.
