Default Marshawn Lynch Arrested

Marshawn Lynch Arrested
in California
Faces Gun Possession Charge
Updated: Sunday, 15 Feb 2009, 4:51 PM EST


CULVER CITY, CA (WIVB) - Bills running back Marshawn Lynch was arrested earlier this week in California. He was charged with felony possession of a concealed firearm. The incident, first reported by profootballtalk.com, has been confirmed to News 4 by police in Culver City, CA.

Lynch was arrested Wednesday, February 11 in Culver City, which is located outside of Los Angeles. The arrest came three days after Lynch played at the Pro Bowl in Hawaii.

Here is the official news release from the Culver City, CA police:


On Wednesday Evening, February 11 2009, Culver City Police Officers were patrolling the Fox Hills area of Culver City when they contacted three adult males seated in a 2006 Mercedes Benz. Upon contacting the occupants they learned one of the subjects was Buffalo Bills running back; Marshawn Lynch. A subsequent field investigation led to the discovery of a loaded firearm. The officers determined the gun belonged to Lynch and he was arrested for posession of a concealed firearm. Lynch was transported to CCPD booked and later released on bail. The case will be submitted to the District Attorney's Office for filing consideration.

Lynch was released on a $35,000 bond. The case now moves to the District Attorney.

This afternoon, the Buffalo Bills issued the following statement through VP of Communications Scott Berchtold:

"We can confirm that Marshawn was arrested in California and has retained an attorney. We are in the process of trying to gather the facts and will not offer a comment while that process is ongoing."

It is the second brush with the law for Lynch in the last year. He was involved in a hit and run incident in downtown Buffalo in May 2008. He pled guilty to failing to use sufficient care to avoid hitting a pedestrian and was fined $100 dollars.

Lynch was not suspended by the NFL for that incident, but could face suspension this time for both the charge and repeat offender status.

WTF is up with these athletes lately? Including our beloved Jeff Reed - they think they're above the law.

He should do jail time but of course, he won't. His vampire bat will work him a deal.

I dunno...seems like having a gun shouldn't be a crime unless you're already a convicted felon.

unfortunely you are right. he will probably get a fine and community service, where he has to go around to school kids and talk about not having a gun..

that was a totally different time, and people seemed to have more common sense on when and where to use guns.

I find it hard to believe that Lynch was actually selected to the Pro Bowl. He and Jay Suckler two worst players in the pro bowl this year.
Another drawback to fans voting in the pro bowl
