SAN DIEGO (AP) - A San Diego judge says a Kansas City Chiefs fan who was arrested at a Chiefs-Chargers game after flipping off the crowd was subject to the NFL code of conduct but did not commit any crime.

Jason Ensign's attorney, Mary Frances Prevost, said Tuesday that Superior Court Judge Gale Kaneshiro has granted her request to dismiss all charges against him.

In her ruling, Kaneshiro says the gesture was an alleged violation of the NFL code but not a crime.

Ensign was arrested in 2009 after private security guards forced him into a stadium tunnel and then applied pain techniques to keep him from resisting. City Attorney Jan Goldsmith charged Ensign with misdemeanor battery for punching and biting a security guard.

Kaneshiro says no words justified their unlawful use of force.
