FAIRFAX COUNTY, Va. (WUSA9) -- The DWI case against former Washington Redskins tight end Fred Davis was dismissed Wednesday in Fairfax County General District Court.

According to Davis' attorney, Mark Dycio, he challenged the police's ability to stop Davis' vehicle and the judge ruled that the police did not have enough reasonable and "articulable" evidence to initiate the stop.

Dycio said police were responding to a call that someone was in a non-moving vehicle at a Tysons Corner intersection while the traffic lights were cycling from green to red in February. When police arrived, Davis was driving and he was pulled over, Dycio said.

On Davis' future, Dycio said, "He's in great shape and is looking forward to getting back into the league."

Davis' arrest came less than two days after he was suspended indefinitely for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy. We're told he plans to apply for reinstatement to the league.
