BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Bills defensive tackle Ed Oliver's charges of DWI and unlawfully carrying a weapon from his May 16 arrest near Houston, Texas have been dismissed.

According to KRIV's Mark Berman, the results of Oliver's blood test came back negative; there was no evidence of drugs in his system.

On May 16, Oliver was driving dangerously in a construction zone and was pulled over. He spent the following night in the Montgomery County Jail.

The dismissal of the DWI charge leads to the dismissal of the unlawfully carrying a weapon charge, as well. The former affected the latter.

Both Oliver and the Bills responded to the charges being dismissed on Twitter on Wednesday afternoon.

Oliver has since returned to Western New York in advance of the NFL's mandated training camp start date of July 28th.
