Marshawn Lynch Won't Be Suspended For Offseason DUI Arrest, According To Report

Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch will not be suspended for his offseason arrest on DUI charges, according to a report from CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora.

The NFL has decided to wait until the case gets resolved before making any further judgement, which in all likelihood won't happen until 2013, keeping Lynch on the field this season. If he has troubles with the law again things could change as the league reserves the right to reconsider it's decision. Lynch has already had a meeting with Commissioner Roger Goodell concerning this matter.

The sixth year back out of Cal signed a four-year, $31 million contract extension in March after rushing for a career high 1,204 yards and 12 touchdowns last year for the Seahawks.

Marshawn Lynch Officially Charged With DUI

Marshawn Lynch has officially been charged with driving under the influence. Alameda County officials confirmed that Lynch, who was arrested over the weekend, has been charged with DUI and having a blood alcohol content of .08 or higher.

The Seattle Seahawks are in a tough spot with Lynch. They gave him a four-year, $31 million deal last March that included $17 million in guarantees and now find themselves in a position where their running back could be suspended. Lynch has prior history of misconduct, already having served a three-game suspension earlier in his career, which leaves the door open for NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to levy another punishment.

Lynch was reportedly seen weaving between lanes and nearly hit two cars before being pulled over, the police report said. The Seahawks are aware of the situation and determining the facts.

Marshawn Lynch's Arrest History Could Lead To Suspension

Marshawn Lynch's DUI might end up costing the newly re-signed running back some playing time. Lynch has already received a suspension once in his career after a weapons charge, and he had his drivers' license revoked in 2009 after hitting a pedestrian -- a history which could result in Lynch receiving punishment from the NFL, says Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com.

The NFL does not typically suspend players for a first DUI offense, but Lynch's prior history puts him at greater risk for a suspension. The details surrounding Lynch's arrest are crucial and have yet to come out.

We all know Roger Goodell is no stranger to handing out punishments. Lynch -- who signed a four-year, $31 million contract with the Seahawks in March -- will almost definitely be penalized somehow, and judging from his past, it's unlikely to be a mere slap on the wrist.
