ESPN: Officers who arrested Bills RB Marshawn Lynch last week for
possessing a loaded gun decided to search him after noticing the
smell of marijuana coming from the vehicle he occupied, police
said Wednesday. Lynch and two other men were sitting in a parked
Mercedes Benz with no license plates and dark, tinted windows on
Feb. 11 when officers approached to investigate if the car was
stolen, said police Capt. Dave Tankenson. The officers smelled
marijuana and searched the car and its occupants, finding four
marijuana cigarettes and an unregistered 9 mm pistol, Tankenson
said. Officers were unsure if the drugs belonged to Lynch. Lynch's
attorney, Gerald Schwartzbach, said the RB was not booked on any
drug violations. He said he had not seen a copy of the police
report and would not comment further. Tankenson said the LA County
district attorney's office will decide whether to charge Lynch
with possessing the gun by the end of the week. Even if Lynch is
not charged and convicted, he could face disciplinary action from
the NFL for violating the league's personal conduct policy.
