I have tried to wait for more information to come out about this but nothing as of yet. Supposedly Marshawn and two of his boys were chillin in his car. Not sure whether they were outside a friends house, a parking lot, a housing development, but they were in Culver City, CA. The police who happened to be on patrol 'came into contact' with these individuals and one of them realized that one of the individuals was in fact Marshawn Lynch. Supposedly a window rolled down in the car and the police smelled marijuana, which sparked a search of the car. A loaded gun was found and attributed to Lynch, who was subsequently arrested and charged with having a concealed handgun.
I'm normally not in defense of stupid, but this sounds like a lot of baloney. How do officers on patrol happen to 'come into contact' with three (I'm making the assumption here) black men in a Mercedes? Lynch was not given any traffic violation and I haven't seen a verification that any drugs were found in the car. Can you spell C-O-N-S-P-I-R-A-C-Y?
Now Lynch has been in trouble with the law in the past (hitting a woman while driving his vehicle and leaving the scene, she required 7 stitches and had a bruised hip), but now he will probably incur the wrath of the NFL because of his slip ups. I want to wait and see if more information comes out, but right now, it looks like this could get tossed out of court. The NFL may still punish him.
Is this an example of Driving While Black? Just concerned police? Have you heard anything different about this case?
