Marshawn Lynch Pleads Not Guilty To DUI Charges

Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch has had enough trouble with the law during the course of his NFL career, but is apparently going to try and fight his latest incident as ESPN is reporting that Seattle's star running back has pleaded not guilty to DUI charges in California.

According to his attorney, Ivan Golde, Lynch blew a .08 at the scene shortly after he was pulled over on July 14 in Alameda County and subsequently arrested. He registered a slightly higher blood-alcohol level when tested at the jail on a calibrated breathalyzer. Golde claims Lynch was under .08 when he was pulled over and his blood-alcohol level had risen by the time he had gotten to the jail.

The California Highway Patrol reported seeing Lynch weaving in and out of lanes on Interstate 880 in Emeryville, CA. An incident report released by the California Highway Patrol described Lynch driving a Ford Econoline van and having two near collisions with other vehicles.

Lynch was charged with driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol and driving while having a blood-alcohol level of .08 or higher. He has an August 14 court date.
