Marshawn Lynch issues the obligatory apology

When players get arrested, there’s a steady and predictable stream of events.

The team issues a statement, saying they’re aware of the incident and take it very seriously, and reserve comment until the legal process plays out. That’s usually followed by the perfunctory player apology.

Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch followed the playbook Friday, issuing a statement regarding his drunk driving arrest.

“I want to apologize to my family, the Seattle Seahawks, the NFL and the 12th Man for the negative attention resulting from my recent actions,” Lynch said in the statement. “This is not the type of community leader I have been over the last two years or the one I’m striving to become. I want to assure everyone that I will work to be better and look forward to a very exciting, and very successful season with the Seattle Seahawks.”

Lynch was arrested early on Saturday morning in his hometown of Oakland, Calif., and DUI charges were filed Wednesday. His arraignment is scheduled for August 14.

    Didn’t this retard get busted on a hit and run in Buffalo also? Where is Goodell lately? Half the league is getting arrested over the last month.

    If Lynch is found guilty of this drunk driving charge, look for Goodell to hammer on him like no tomorrow.

    Jeremy this would only be his first strike on the substance abuse policy.
