Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch cleared by Bellevue Police

Two days after the Bellevue Police Department named Marshawn Lynch in an assault investigation, the department released a statement Wednesday night clearing the Seahawks running back.

“The Bellevue Police Department has determined that Marshawn Lynch was not involved in this incident in any way,” the statement said. “The case remains an open and active investigation. We appreciate the cooperation we have received from Mr. Lynch and the Seahawks organization during this investigation.”

Bellevue’s initial press release named Lynch while also admitting they still didn’t know if he, in fact, was involved in the alleged assault and property damage. The Seahawks took the unusual step of responding not with a generic statement acknowledging they were aware of the allegation, but rather by calling it “bogus,” which turned out to indeed be the case.
