Marshawn Lynch in more hot water
Buffalo Bills running back Marshawn Lynch has been accused of stealing $20 from a woman at a TGI Friday’s last month, according to Lou Michel of the Buffalo News.
Lynch was at the popular restaurant chain in Hamburg, New York on December 7, 2009 when he allegedly grabbed a $20 bill from a woman who was trying to pay her check.
As luck would have it for Lynch, the woman’s husband is Buffalo Police Sgt. William Crawford, who filed the complaint against Lynch a day after the incident.
“She’s terrified of him. He threatened her girlfriend who tried to retrieve the money after he robbed my wife,” Crawford told the Buffalo News. “He thinks he’s above the law because of his status as an athlete.”
This latest batch of trouble for Lynch comes less than one year after he was arrested in Culver City, California on felony charges for possession of a concealed firearm.
He received three years’ probation and was suspended by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell for the first three games of the 2009 regular season.
No word yet on what Goodell plans to do about Lynch’s latest run-in with the law.
