A judge dismissed all charges against singer Kelis stemming from a 2007 incident in which she was accused of disrupting a police operation by rushing toward officers and screaming racial profanities. Authorities were talking to some men in the South Beach nightclub district when they said Kelis Rogers-Jones rushed toward them, screamed and said one of the men was her husband, Nas, according to the arrest report.

She was charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest without violence. Circuit Judge Antonio Arzola stopped the case from going forward Thursday.

Kelis is famous for her 2003 album, "Tasty," and its chart-topping single, "Milkshake."
