Default Bills RB Lynch caught with a gun!!!

Buffalo Bills running back Marshawn Lynch is in trouble with the law again.



Lynch

Lynch, who played in the Pro Bowl one week ago, was arrested Wednesday in Culver City, Calif., on felony charges for possession of a concealed firearm.

The Culver City Police Department on Sunday afternoon released a brief statement with details of the arrest. The statement noted officers spotted three men in a 2006 Mercedes Benz and recognized Lynch as the Bills' running back.

"A subsequent field investigation led to the discovery of a loaded firearm," the report said. "The officers determined the gun belonged to Lynch and he was arrested for possession of a concealed firearm."

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 are aware of it and will monitor it," NFL spokesman Greg Aiello wrote in an e-mail to ESPN.com.


AFC East blog

ESPN.com's Tim Graham writes about all things AFC East in his division blog.

Blog network: NFL Nation

Gun safety is a significant issue in the NFL. It has been a hot topic since New York Giants receiver Plaxico Burress was arrested on two felony charges in December after accidentally shooting himself at a Manhattan nightclub.

"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 agent didn't return ESPN.com's request for a comment.

Lynch last summer was the subject of a hit-and-run investigation in Buffalo after his luxury SUV struck a woman in the street and sped away.

After nearly a month of posturing from Lynch's lawyers and the Erie County District Attorney, Lynch paid a $100 fine in a plea agreement. He didn't face criminal charges because the woman's injuries weren't serious enough. She sustained a bruised hip and cut to her thigh that required seven stitches at a local hospital.

In 2006, as Lynch was about to enter his junior season at California, he was the target of a drive-by shooting outside his prep alma mater, Oakland Technical. Police determined Lynch was the victim of mistaken identity.

Lynch, who will turn 23 in April, ran for 1,038 yards and eight touchdowns last season. He also caught 47 passes for 300 yards and a touchdown.

Not a Bronco nor an AFC West rival.

His problem, as far as I am concerned.

Hope he can resolve this.

A $35K bond on the gun charge seems pretty steep. I think I'd just go get a carry/conceal permit.

Obviously you dont realize some of us come from places were this is a requirement, as well as being in the lime light such as Marshawn people need protection as proven by numerous recent gun attacks on NFL players...

Or maybe he could learn that the problems of keeping a loaded gun in a state where it's a felony to do so aren't worth the benefits...

And I love how you're racist if you think toting a loaded firearm around is thugish. How about you don't go hang where you'll need one?

He certainly has the money to go somewhere that one isn't needed.

He did, he went to Buffalo. Shame on him for not cutting all ties with his friends and family back home though, huh?

Oh the old "well if you were there, you'd take a gun too" argument.

No I wouldn't. If I made what he did I'd move my immediate family to a new house. Then If my friends wanted to see me I'd invite them over. You don't have to turn your back on them. But you're right. He had no choice and after being arrested already and sitting down with Roger Goodell, he was totally justified toting his "piece" around in his shiny Cady knowing that the commisioner is a nazi about this stuff. He didn't even have the good sense to make his friend carry it and be his fall guy like 90% of the other guys have good sense to do.

Marshawn is an idiot and deserves the suspensions that he's going to be handed.

I wouldn't, but if I was Marshawn Lynch or had his money and easily recognizable ugly-ass face I would.

I did part of my growing up in SC Los Angeles, and despite the complete ****tiness of the area and LA in general, it's still home and I still go back sometimes. Nobody can tell me that I can't. I grew up there. It would sure be nice of Lynch to spend his enormous $4 million signing bonus or whatever it was on new houses for all his friends and family, but I think he lives in reality unfortunately.

I just don't understand how people who don't live in the same 'lime light' can say how they would or wouldn't live if in it.

Too bad for him. Maybe he will learn from this.

Wasn't he in a hit and run last year too? He better get suspended for four games at least.

It's quite simple. There are thousands of people that have come from the same sad circumstances that are able to enjoy success and go through life without getting arrested twice in a year. Lynch isn't some special sad case like he's the only one in the world who's made it out of the ghetto and is just misunderstood and lonely.

meh won't happen in Los Angeles very easily. To get that permit you have to pretty much know the Chief of Police. My brother is an atty in Long Beach and did some cases where he was threatened. Long Beach Police Chief offered him a concealed weapons permit but my Bro declined.

Smart move IMO all carried guns do is lead to a gunfight. Before you go carrying one remember that.

There is this park on the Corner of Compton/Atlantic when we were in HS would drive there and buy weed off the crips. They would be playing basketball and hanging out in da park. There was one guy down there who told us once, you stupid white kids no better then to come down here at night right?

Yeah growing up in so calif during the 80's was a strange ride. Of course I was from Lakewood which was like another world from Compton, even though the cities seperated by very little in terms of miles. It was wierd white kids living in the suburbs, and 15 minutes away black kids running the gauntlet just to get home from school.

Compton not as bad as it once was, but us stupid whitey's still don't go there!!!!! especially at night.
