When Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch found himself charged with DUI in July 2012, Seattle fans and fantasy owners feared a suspension during the coming football season. Midway through the 2013 season, the charges are still pending.
On Friday, a judge in Alameda County Court denied a motion to dismiss the case against Lynch, and to exclude certain unspecified evidence, according to Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com.
Attorney Ivan Golde contends that the arresting officer has changed his story regarding the circumstances leading to the initial stop of Lynch. Golde claims that, in 2012, the arresting officer claimed he watched Lynch driving for only one-fifth of a mile. Golde contends that the officer now says he watched Lynch for a full mile.
