Woman sues Marshawn Lynch

Buffalo Bills running back Marshawn Lynch is coming off the worst season of his NFL career.

And now his off-season is getting off to a bad start: Lynch is being sued by the woman who was hit by his SUV while crossing the street in 2008.

According to Courthouse News Service, the lawsuit alleges that Lynch “operated his motor vehicle in such a reckless, careless and negligent manner, while in an intoxicated state, so as to lose control … causing the [vehicle] to strike the pedestrian plaintiff.”

The 27-year-old woman says she sustained “severe, painful and permanent injuries.”

Lynch, who left the scene of the accident, pleaded guilty to failure to exercise due care toward a pedestrian, paid a $100 fine and had his driver’s license revoked.

    He’s gonna be sent out of Buffalo after this season. He has taken a backseat to Fred Jackson in the backfield and brings too much drama to the clubhouse. Buddy Nix will have him out of town soon enough.

    This guy is just another example of a waste of talent. You make so much money, have someone else (hopefully sober) drive you around!!!

    I would just like to take this opportunity to thank the Bills for giving us Willis McGahee. While Marshawn Lynch is being served court summons, McGahee is out there having a career best day with 167 yards rushing and 3 TDs.

    Fred Jackson is 10x better behind a crappy offensive line than Lynch is. Lynch is expendable but I would rather keep him for insurance just in case…

    This chick spent the cash Marshawn gave her to shut her up at the bars in Buffalo and is looking for more. I hope the Bills keep him. Hes a very solid power back that complements Freddy’s running style perfectly. Hes had a bad year, but had back to back 1,000 yard seasons to start his career. If we had a competant coaching staff to utilize Jackson and Lynch better and were not playing guys off Green Bay’s practice squad and 6th-string tackles on the o-line the results would have been much different. Buffalo would be dumb to trade a good young back for a couple mid-round picks.

    Lynch still has potentuial, but he is just too stupid to understand how to use it.
    He is a great runner, and good with the media, but likes to hang out in cars with guns and weed, and drive drunk on the only busy street in Buffalo.
    Fred Jackson is the man.

    Jamarcus Russell wins that title hands down. But it is a shame Lynch is wasting his considerable talents.

    Another running back wasting his talent, Travis Henry, Willis Mcgahee.

    Beast Mode :(
    I’m a Pats fan but I love this guy. So this is a civil suit right? Is there a statute of limitations on such things? Pardon my ignorance if that’s a dumb question.
