Hot Dog Eating Champ -- A Big Wiener in Court

8/5/2010 11:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Competitive hot dog eating champion Takeru Kobayashi just scored a foot-long victory in court -- because his trespassing case was just "basically dismissed" by a judge in Brooklyn.

Takeru Kobayashi

Takeru was in court moments ago to face charges of resisting arrest, trespassing and obstructing governmental administration -- after he bum-rushed the stage at this year's Nathan's International Hot Dog Eating Contest.

Luckily for the elastic stomached hot dog demolisher, the sweet taste of justice crossed his lips today, after his lawyer says the judge decided to "basically dismiss" the case.

Outside of court, Kobayashi -- through translator -- said he had "no regrets at all."

He may well be innocent of tresspassing but he is damn sure guilty of resisting arrest, I saw the video. How could they have dismissed that charge too?

A guy who can eat a lot of wieners would be quite popular in prison.

He wasn't a contestant at the event, this is all his own publicity stunt to sell his t-shirts.

HE BASICALLY...BUN-RUSHED THE STAGE BECAUSE HE DIDN'T RELISH THE IDEA OF NOT COMPETING. SADLY HE COULDN'T CUT THE MUSTARD WITH A FOOT LONG OF SECURITY GRABBING AT HIM. THEY THREW HIM AND HIS LITTLE KOSHER HOT DOG IN JAIL WHERE THEY GRILLED HIM. NOW THAT HE IS FREE I HOPE HE CAN CATSUP ON HIS EATING SKILLS!
