This would suck if it is him but on the LASD website it says his birthday is 4/02/1986 and on the nfl.com website it says 4/22/1986...I mean its 20 days apart and could be a type-o but still might not be him.
That would be terrible for the bills though, 2 off seasons in a row.
BILLS’ LYNCH CHARGED WITH POSSESSION OF A CONCEALED FIREARM
Posted by Aaron Wilson on February 15, 2009, 3:42 p.m. EST
Buffalo Bills Pro Bowl running back Marshawn Lynch has been arrested and charged with felony possession of a concealed firearm, according to a press release from the Culver City Police Department. The announcement confirms that it was Lynch who was involved in this incident last Wednesday night.
According to a police announcement e-mailed to Pro Football Talk, Culver City police officers were patrolling the Fox Hills area of Culver City when they came into contact with three adult males in a 2006 Mercedes Benz.
After speaking with the occupants, they determined that one of the men in the car was Lynch, the Bills starting running back. A field investigation led to the “discovery of a loaded firearm.”
According to the report: “The officers determined the gun belonged to Lynch and he was arrested for possesion of a concealed firearm.”
Lynch was tranported to the booking center and was later released on $35,000 bond. Police officials said that the case will be submitted to the District Attorney’s office for filing consideration.
As Mike Florio wrote when he first reported about the arrest in two posts earlier today, Lynch could possibly face sanctions under the NFL’s personal conduct policy depending on his legal status and how NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell views this incident.
It still isn't being reported by any of the major media outlets. In fact, it is being reported ONLY by PFT. They have been getting better recently, but I still want to hold out until someone else confirms the story.

I don't have to watch it to know it was not interesting.
Wait, so the police "came into contact" with them, figured one of them was an NFL runningback and then decided that was enough to lead into a "field investigation"? Sounds fishy to me.
That's what I was thinking. You never, ever, ever, ever, ever consent to letting your vehicle getting searched without making the officer get a search warrant first. I don't give a **** how much "probable cause" the officer says he has.
