Eagles running back Dion Lewis appeared in court today to face felony charges for allegedly pulling a fire alarm at an Albany, N.Y. hotel. The case was dismissed, said Lewis' attorney, Craig Crist.

Crist said the Albany County district attorney stated in court that there was no evidence a fire alarm was ever pulled. Lewis is expected to report to Lehigh along with the rest of the Eagles' veterans on Wednesday.

Lewis was arrested with his older brother July 8 after the Lewises pounded on the locked glass doors of a hotel lobby in the middle of the night and pulled the fire alarm, according to police.

Lewis, 21, and his brother, 35, were charged with felony counts of falsely reporting a fire and misdemeanor reckless endangerment of property.
