A police department in the state of Washington is investigating Seattle Seahawk running back Marshawn Lynch for assault and criminal mischief allegations.

The local police were quick not to jump to conclusions. Per the police spokesman: “At this point, this is only an allegation. We haven’t even confirmed that he was there, so it’s very early on in this investigation. Everything that we can confirm is in the news release”.

While details are still murky, the incident might have taken place early Sunday morning in a woman’s Bellevue apartment. The woman claimed that the football player threatened a battery against her and then damaged some of her things.

The police were quick to note that no sexual assault or domestic battery was suspected.

As for Marshawn Lynch, the timing could not be worse for the three-time Pro Bowler. Lynch last year led the Superbowl champion Seahawks with over 1200 rushing yards. There were many insiders who had hoped that a superbowl ring would mature the trouble-proned running back.

He had previously been suspended three games in 2009 by the NFL commissioner for a weapons charge. Then just two years later, he was arrested for a DUI.

Despite his past, it is important to remember that these newest charges are mere allegations at the time of this writing and he has yet to be charged.
