SEATTLE- The Seattle Seahawks made it clear Tuesday they do not believe there is merit to the allegations that running back Marshawn Lynch committed assault or personal property damage against a woman over the weekend.

While we maintain the utmost respect for the investigative process, after speaking with Marshawn, we are comfortable these accusations are bogus, said a Seahawks spokesperson in a one sentence statement.

Bellevue Police said Monday it was investigating the allegations made by a woman on Sunday. The woman allegedly claimed Lynch assaulted her and damaged her property at Lynch s downtown Bellevue apartment early Sunday morning.

A Bellevue Police spokesperson said Tuesday that the investigation was active and ongoing and that investigators are still collecting facts.

Lynch could not be reached for comment.
