Seahawks believe Marshawn Lynch accusations are 'bogus'

Jeff Gross

The Seahawks released a brief statement in response to assault and destruction of property allegations against Marshawn Lynch:

"While we maintain the utmost respect for the investigative process, after speaking with Marshawn, we are comfortable these accusations are bogus."

Lynch is still being investigated for his involvement in an alleged assault and damage to property that occurred Saturday night in Bellevue. The Bellevue police released a statement that notes a woman has alleged that Lynch was involved, but stipulates that neither domestic violence nor sexual assault were part of the report. No arrests have been made thus far.

Yesterday's release from the Bellevue PD stated:

On August 10, 2014, at approximately 2:20 p.m., the Bellevue Police Department received an allegation of an assault and personal property damage at a downtown Bellevue apartment unit. The incident was alleged to have occurred at 2:30 a.m. on August 10. The female victim alleged that the suspect was Marshawn T. Lynch. No domestic violence or sexual assault was involved in the allegation. The case has been assigned to a detective and is an active investigation. The Bellevue Police Department is in the process of gathering the facts of this alleged incident, including verifying whether or not Mr. Lynch was in fact involved. No arrests have been made. There is no further information available at this time.

Considering the Seahawks' strong stance on the accusations, it now seems likely that this thing will be resolved fairly quickly.
