Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch had a court date this morning for a motion to suppress evidence in Alameda County District Court, stemming from charges filed against him for driving under the influence of alcohol in July of last year.
According to Teresa Drenick, assistant district attorney for the Alameda County District Attorney’s office, the motion to suppress was continued to July 5.
Drenick also said that no court date has been set.
The "motion to suppress" means that Lynch's lawyers are trying to get certain evidence thrown out for one reason or another. If they are successful, it will be very difficult to get a conviction. Regardless, this is a grey cloud hanging over Lynch's fantasy value and it's unclear how his previous run-ins with the law will impact how the NFL handles this one.
