SAN DIEGO - A San Diego traffic court has thrown out a citation against a woman who was cited for driving while wearing the Google Glass computer-in-eyeglass device.

Commissioner John Blair ruled Thursday that Cecilia Abadie was not guilty because the code she was cited for requires proof that the device was in operation.

Blair found there was no proof beyond a reasonable doubt.

Abadie is believed to be the first motorist cited for wearing Google Glass while driving. She was also found not guilty of speeding.
