Seattle Seahawks star running back Marshawn Lynch was cleared of any wrongdoing after an investigation into allegations of an alleged assault and property damage case.
It was determined that Lynch wasn't involved after originally being characterized as a suspect, according to the police department.
"The Bellevue Police Department has determined that Marshawn Lynch was not involved in this incident in any way," the police said in a statement. "This case remains an open and active investigation. We appreciate the cooperation we have received from Mr. Lynch and the Seahawks organization during this investigation.”
The Seahawks defended Lynch previously.
“While we maintain the utmost respect for the investigative process, after speaking with Marshawn, we are comfortable these accusations are bogus,” the Seahawks said in a statement.
