Sorry Bills fans...it is.
CULVER CITY, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say Buffalo Bills running
back Marshawn Lynch has been arrested in Southern California on a
weapons possession charge.
Culver City police said in a statement Sunday that Lynch was
arrested after officers confronted him and two other men in a car
and found a loaded firearm in the vehicle.
Lynch was arrested Wednesday for possession of a concealed
firearm after officers determined the gun belonged to him. He was
released that night on $35,000 bail.
Culver City police did not immediately return a phone message
seeking information about why officers first confronted Lynch and
Lynch's lawyer, M. Gerald Schwartzbach, said his client was not
involved in a traffic accident and was in California visiting
A Buffalo Bills spokesman had no comment.
"We can confirm that Marshawn was arrested in California and has retained an attorney," Bills vice president of communications Scott Berchtold said in a statement. "We are in the process of trying to gather the facts and will not offer a comment while that process is ongoing."
