Bills Running Back Marshawn Lynch Arrested On Weapons Charges

Buffalo Bills All-Pro running back Marshawn Lynch was arrested in Culver City on a weapons charge, police said Sunday.

Culver City Police said Lynch was arrested Wednesday night after officers approached him and two other men sitting in a 2006 Mercedes-Benz in the Los Angeles suburb and found a loaded firearm. Lynch, 22, was arrested after officers determined the gun belonged to him. He was released that night on $35,000 bail.

Lynch's lawyer, M. Gerald Schwartzbach, said his client was not involved in a traffic incident. Schwartzbach said the player was in California to visit friends.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff Department's inmate database says Lynch was booked at 7:12 p.m. and was released on a $35,000 bond at 8:45 p.m.

"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."

Lynch's arrest marked the second time in less than a year that he has been in trouble with the law. In June, Lynch pleaded guilty to a traffic violation and admitted speeding off in his Porsche Cayenne SUV after striking a female pedestrian near Buffalo's downtown bar district.
