Report: Bills’ Marshawn Lynch suspended three games

According to ESPN’s Michael Smith, Bills’ running back Marshawn Lynch has been suspended three games by the NFL for violating the league’s conduct policy.

Marshawn LynchLynch was arrested near Los Angeles Feb. 11 and later pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor gun charge. In searching a parked car carrying Lynch, Culver City police found a 9 mm semiautomatic handgun inside a backpack in the trunk.

Prosecutors said the backpack contained other items belonging to Lynch. Police said they also found four marijuana cigarettes in the car, but no drug charges were filed.

After pleading guilty to having a concealed firearm in a vehicle, Lynch was sentenced last month to 80 hours of community service and three years’ probation. The Bills’ 2007 first-round draft pick also issued an apology.

It was Lynch’s second brush with the law in less than a year. Last June, Lynch pleaded guilty to a traffic violation and admitted driving off after striking a female pedestrian with his car near Buffalo’s downtown bar district May 31.

I don’t want to hear any Bills fans crying foul over this because Lynch hit a woman with his car in May of last year and just freaking left her there. He got a slap on the wrist ($100 fine, plus had his driver’s license and car registration revoked) and nothing else.

He deserves the three game suspension.
