Earlier today in another post I explained why we didn’t report on the initial news that Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch was under investigation for an assault by police in Bellevue, Washington. You can read it all here but in a nutshell the story sounded like a load of Michael Crabtree to me and I didn’t want to rush to judgment one way or another.
As it turns out the allegations are completely bogus, as we suspected.
Moments ago Curtis Crabtree of Pro Football Talk tweeted out this news release from the Bellevue Police Department, which exonerates Lynch:

Don’t you folks who jumped on the “cut that thug” train feel just a little silly now?
