Seahawks’ Lynch ‘s DUI case continued to July 5

Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch had a court date on Wednesday for a motion to suppress evidence in Alameda County Court, regarding charges filed against him for driving under the influence of alcohol in July of last year.

According to Teresa Drenick, assistant district attorney for the Alameda County District Attorney’s office, the motion to suppress was continued to July 5.

No trial date has been set.

Lynch, 26, was arrested by the California Highway Patrol early Saturday morning on July 14, 2012, when a police officer observed him driving north on Interstate 880 in Oakland, weaving in and out of lanes in a white Ford van, and nearly colliding with two cars.

After failing a preliminary sobriety test, Lynch was taken into custody and transported to the Alameda County Sheriff department’s north county jail in Oakland. Lynch submitted to a breathalyzer test, and the test came back positive that his blood alcohol content level was over the state’s legal limit of 0.08.

The Alameda County District Attorney’s office filed charges against Lynch for driving under the influence of alcohol on July 18, 2012.

Lynch pled not guilty to charges of allegedly driving under the influence of alcohol in Alameda County Superior Court last August.

Lynch was a no-show on the first day of organized team activities for the Seahawks this week. However, the Cal product did attend Phase II of the Seahawks’ offseason training program, and head coach Pete Carroll said he looked in shape and ready to go.

“This is voluntary,” Carroll said, when asked about Lynch not being at practice this week. “That’s what the rules and guidelines are all set up to be. Chris Clemons is rehabbing and he is not here and Marshawn is not here. We miss him and we’d like him to be here. This is a lot of fun and there is a lot of good stuff happening here.

“He’s in very good shape, he came in ten days ago and he’s in very good shape. He’s working in a very intense program in his area and he’s benefitting from it. We’d love to see everyone here.”
