Seahawks say Lynch accusation "bogus'

August 12th, 2014 in News

RENTON, Wash. - The Seattle Seahawks said accusations star running back Marshawn Lynch was involved in an assault and damage of personal property are "bogus."

In a statement Tuesday morning the team said it has "the utmost respect for the investigative process," but after speaking with Lynch the Seahawks concluded the allegations were without merit.

The Bellevue Police Department released a statement Monday saying the alleged incident took place around 2:30 a.m. Sunday and Lynch is alleged to have been involved. Bellevue police are investigating.

The incident was reported by a female about 12 hours after it allegedly took place at a downtown Bellevue apartment. Police said there was no domestic violence or sexual assault involved in the allegation.

The police department had no new information to release Tuesday.

"We have a full-time detective working this case and that detective has made significant progress in investigating these allegations fully and thoroughly," police public information officer Seth Tyler said in an email.

Head coach Pete Carroll didn't offer much further comment on the matter.
