Village Voice Media Executive Editor Michael Lacey answers questions this morning after being released from jail. 

Maricopa County Attorney Andrew Thomas dropped the case against Village Voice Media executives Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin today after the two were arrested and jailed yesterday.

"It has become clear to me the investigation has gone in a direction I would not have authorized," Thomas said.

Special prosecutor Dennis Wilenchik, who pursued the case, has been let go, according to the Arizona Republic.

The arrests stem from a cover story in Phoenix New-Times by Lacey and Larkin, in which they revealed grand jury secrets.
