NEW YORK (AP) -- Chivas USA defender Mario De Luna has been fined for violent conduct in the team's Sept. 21 game against Houston.

Major League Soccer said Wednesday that De Luna's action against Dynamo midfielder Brad Davis in the 44th minute didn't warrant a suspension.

In another case, the league said that both the Montreal Impact and Vancouver Whitecaps violated the mass confrontation policy in the 38th minute of their Sept. 20 game.

The Impact was fined $10,000 and coach Marco Schallibaum was hit with a $2,000 penalty because it was the club's third infraction. Vancouver received an official warning.
