Seahawks' Lynch target in assault probe

Bellevue, WA (SportsNetwork.com) - Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch is being investigated by police over an allegation of assault and property damage at an apartment complex.

The Bellevue, Washington, police department issued a statement Monday confirming that Lynch was named by an unidentified woman in regards to an incident that occurred early Sunday morning. The complaint did not involve domestic violence or sexual assault, according to the release.

"On August 10, 2014, at approximately 2:20 p.m., the Bellevue Police Department received an allegation of an assault and personal property damage at a downtown Bellevue apartment unit," the statement says. "The incident was alleged to have occurred at 2:30 a.m. on August 10. The female victim alleged that the suspect was Marshawn T. Lynch. No domestic violence or sexual assault was involved in the allegation. The case has been assigned to a detective and is an active investigation.

"The Bellevue Police Department is in the process of gathering the facts of this alleged incident, including verifying whether or not Mr. Lynch was in fact involved. No arrests have been made. There is no further information available at this time."

Lynch, a Pro Bowl honoree in each of the past three seasons who has rushed for over 1,200 yards in each of those campaigns, has been involved in off-field issues over the course of his seven-year career. The workhorse back was suspended three games by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell in 2009, while then a member of the Buffalo Bills, after pleading guilty to carrying a concealed weapon in the trunk of a car.

The 28-year-old also had his driver's license revoked following a hit-and-run accident in Buffalo in 2008. Four years later, Lynch was cited for reckless driving in his hometown of Oakland, California.

Lynch recently received a $1 million raise on his original $5 million salary for the upcoming season after staging a weeklong holdout to open training camp.
