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.

Marshawn Lynch to be suspended 1-2 games

CBSSports.com is reporting that Bills’ running back Marshawn Lynch is expected to be suspended one to two games next season.

Marshawn LynchLynch earlier this month pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor gun charge stemming from a Feb. 11 arrest in Culver City, Calif. According to the police report, Lynch was one of three men seated in a parked Mercedes Benz when he was questioned.

At the time, he was charged with possession of a concealed firearm. But the felony gun charge later was reduced to three misdemeanors — with two of them dropped. Lynch was sentenced to three years of probation and 80 hours of community service.

He also agreed to submit to police searches at any time.

Now that he’s a Bill, maybe T.O. could help this kid get his life on track…

…wait, what happened? I blacked out for a second.
