Cooler heads have prevailed in a dispute over a cup of ice taken from a New Jersey college cafeteria.     

The lawyer for Cedric Calero says authorities on Friday dropped a disorderly persons charge against the 18-year-old freshman at Brookdale Community College in Middletown.     

Calero had been accused of taking a cup of ice without permission after paying for an order of fries.     

A few minutes later, a manager accused the student of stealing. The college says there is no sign showing that the cafeteria doesn't give out or sell cups for ice.     

The student was scheduled to appear in Municipal Court on Monday.
