MASON CITY, Iowa (AP) - An assault case against the city assessor for Mason City has been dropped.

Online court records say the charge against 38-year-old Danielle "Dana" Naumann was dismissed on Wednesday after a request by Floyd County Attorney Normand Klemesrud. He'd been appointed as a special prosecutor because of a potential conflict of interest for the Cerro Gordo County attorney's office.

The Mason City Globe Gazette says the dismissal motion by Klemesrud states there is insufficient evidence to justify prosecution and conviction. It also states Naumann has a valid self-defense claim.

Naumann was arrested in July.
