Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch was arrested today in Oakland, and was taken to Santa Rita Jail. He was cited and released. No other details are available at the time that I’m writing this.
The Seahawks need to be prepared for Lynch to face a suspension for this. This is already Lynch’s 3rd time getting in trouble with the law in his brief NFL career. Lynch was suspended for 3 games after pleading guilty to a weapons charge. He also had his license revoked in 2008 when he struck a pedestrian with his car.
The Seahawks will likely be forced to rely on rookie Robert Turbin to carry the offense for the first few weeks of the season.
