Dion Lewis Status: Eagles RB Has Fire Alarm Case Dismissed

Philadelphia Eagles running back Dion Lewis had the case against him dropped for allegedly pulling a fire alarm at a hotel, according to his lawyer (via Les Bowen).

Lewis appeared in court on Monday where the case was dismissed due to a lack of evidence that a fire alarm was pulled at the Albany, N.Y., Hampton Inn where Lewis and his brother were staying. Lewis and his brother were arrested on July 9 for falsely reporting a fire, a felony charge, and misdemeanor endangerment.

Lewis is a former fifth-round selection of the Eagles (2011). As a rookie last season, Lewis picked up 102 yards and one touchdown on 23 attempts in 15 games (no starts). He also made 31 kickoff returns for 669 yards.

Lewis will report to Lehigh University for Eagles training camp on Wednesday.
