Myers failed to show up for Sumner County District Court Thursday for an unrelated misdemeanor charge after being hospitalized for an emergency appendectomy. The district court judge had dismissed the drug felony charges “without prejudice” on Aug. 6 because he had been taken to an undisclosed Wichita hospital for the removal of his appendix and would not be able to face the charges levied against him in court. Spencer said the intention was to reissue the drug charges once he recovered from the appendectomy and left the hospital.
