Great news Seattle Seahawks fans, Marshawn Lynch is no longer a suspect in an alleged assault and personal property damage incident, he has been officially cleared! The Bellevue Police Department released a statement last night clearing Lynch from the assault and property damage allegations, “The Bellevue Police Department has determined that Marshawn Lynch was not involved in last weekend’s property damage and assault in any way.”
The assault and property damage allegedly occurred this past Sunday, August 10th around 2:30 am. The very next day, Bellevue Police announced Lynch as a possible suspect in the criminal activity, even before they had a chance to interview Lynch himself. The Hawks confident in their star running back’s innocence, quickly responded by saying, “While we maintain the utmost respect for the investigative process, after speaking with Marshawn, we are comfortable these accusations are bogus.”
And indeed the allegations were “bogus.” Although Beastmode is cleared of any wrongdoing the Bellevue Police Department issued this statement as well, “This case remains an open and active investigation. We appreciate the cooperation we have received from Mr. Lynch and the Seahawks organization during this investigation.”
With allegations behind him, Lynch, 28, can now focus on what he does best, “Beast Mode.” Coach Pete Carroll hinted that Marshawn may be playing in the next preseason game against the Chargers. “You may see a little bit of Marshawn in this game,” said Carroll during a KJR-AM interview.
