(AP) A Mobile municipal judge has dismissed a misdemeanor marijuana charge against Detroit Lions defensive tackle Nick Fairley.


Defense attorney Sid Harrell said the charge was dismissed on Tuesday. Judge Matt Greene agreed with prosecutors that there wasn't enough evidence to show partially smoked marijuana cigarettes found in Fairley's vehicle on April 3 belonged to the former first-round pick out of Auburn.


Harrell says Fairley passed a drug test Tuesday, is tested several times a week by the NFL and has passed them all.


Fairley has pleaded guilty to DUI and reckless driving in a Mobile County case stemming from a May arrest. He was sentenced to a six-month suspended jail term, a year of probation and a $600 fine. He hopes a pretrial diversion program will allow those charges to be dismissed.
