Marshawn Lynch knocks phone out of teenager’s hand

Getty Images

The Marshawn Lynch Unretirement Tour currently isn’t going very well.

Beyond the imminent-then-plodding return (which still hasn’t happened), the arm-wrestling event for which he’s apparently escaping NFL scrutiny because he’s officially retired, and the recent need to leak interest in joining the Patriots in an effort to break the apparent impasse with the Raiders, Lynch could have a more tangible problem on his hands.

Via TMZ, Lynch knocked a phone out of the hands of a teenager who was taking video of Lynch after he arrived at Los Angeles International Airport. Per TMZ, the owner of the phone claims the screen was cracked and that he is considering filing assault charges.

The video also shows Lynch later walking past the same teens and turning to spit on the ground. It’s characterized as a “spit in their direction,” but that seems to be a stretch.

It wouldn’t be a stretch for Lynch to face scrutiny under the Personal Conduct Policy. Whether his status of the reserve/retired list exempts him from that policy is a question we’ll be posing to the league office.

    “Beast Mode is ALIVE!” Reportedly, he has never wiped once in his life. The NFL needs this guy back now!

    stop hounding people with camera phones and grow up and stop acting like celebs or athletes are Gods..their just people and im sure if some teens were following your dad around w/ a camera phone he wouldn’t take too kindly to it either…

    While Lynch shouldn’t have knocked the phone out of the teenager’s hand, the fact that that can be registered as “assault” astounds me.

  4. UMadBreaux? says: Apr 11, 2017 4:55 PM

    I think anyone that knows a teenager with a phone also knows they deserve to have it slapped out of their hands most of the time.

    I thought he was just gonna say I want to play again. And then the Seahawks-Raiders work out a trade. His agent and Raiders workout a contract and he shows up for practice. At this rate he is going to just disappear.

  8. nyneal says: Apr 11, 2017 4:59 PM

    Once a punk, always a punk. Lynch was driven out of Buffalo for a reason.
    I only wish those two guys had been UFC fighters and Lynch tried knocking the phone out of their hands. I’d pay money to see him get his teeth knocked out.

    He saw that the kid was filming in portrait mode, and decided to retaliate appropriately.

    This is wrong. Being a celebrity, you have to understand that when you’re out in public, young people like these two 18 year olds are going to want to have proof they actually saw you. So, they do what all young people do, they use their cell phones.
    And do us all a favor — take some grammar and spelling lessons.
    Lynch is a punk. He’s worse than that, but I can’t say it here.

    Well, were the kids taking pictures or shooting video nearby, or were they about 5 inches from his face, screaming and yelling? If it’s the latter, not only should he not be charged, he should be thanked. If it’s the former, at the very least, make him pay for a new phone.

    …just a reminder of why ML shouldn’t be allowed anywhere near this new Raiders team.

    Derek Car definitely isn’t Russell Wilson, quietly putting up with ML’s nonsense.

    “the fact that that can be registered as “assault” astounds me.”

    You should learn the difference between Assault (a threat to do harm — no contact is necessary) and Battery (actually laying hands on somebody in a threatening manner). Understanding the distinction may just keep you out of jail.

  27. steelerfan63 says: Apr 11, 2017 5:20 PM

    Still amazes how people look up to these guys like some kind of God or hero. You probably wouldnt want 80% of NFL players as your neighbor.

  30. minson15 says: Apr 11, 2017 5:23 PM

    Lynch loves kids, and if you disagree that’s your opinion but look up his charity and the work he does outside of being a professional athlete. So for him to do this to a young kid, the kid had to be antagonizing Lynch pretty bad. I would say the kid deserved it.

  31. harrisonhits2 says: Apr 11, 2017 5:24 PM

    Lynch remains an immature child trapped in a man’s body. I would puke if the Pats signed this guy.

  33. billswillnevermove says: Apr 11, 2017 5:26 PM

    He has been always will be a punk. Grew up on the streets of Oakland. When he played in Buffalo he was kicked out of every bar for brining in his own alcohol. Then he ran a lady over in the street and took off without stopping. If not for the NFL Lynch would be in prison.

  38. bigblue00 says: Apr 11, 2017 5:31 PM

    ASSault charges should be brought on those kids. At 18, classifying them as adults is probably a stretch.

  39. thethunderofgunns says: Apr 11, 2017 5:33 PM

    GOOD! Now he won’t be in Silver and Black. Draft a stud RB early and then pick defense in the defense rich draft. RAIDERS!!!!!!!!

  40. thermalito says: Apr 11, 2017 5:36 PM

    According to snowflake generation violating their safe space is practically considered assault. The little punk probably deserved worse

    Note to everyone, STOP FILMING EVERY DUMB THING IN YOUR LIVES. Start enjoying life and stop actively choosing to put a pause on your enjoyment to capture every moment on a photo, video, Snapchat, or whatever other way people choose to make supposed highlight reels of their life. Nobody deserves to be harassed everytime they step in public, no matter what he “signed up for” when he decided to be an NFL running back. Just like nobody cares what your dinner looks like, what a beautiful sunset you saw tonight, or about the 1000th picture of your drooling infant you’ve posted. Good on you, Marshawn.

    I’ve been a Raider fan for over 40 years. When I first heard about Lynch possibly coming out of retirement to play for the Raiders I was all for it, if the price was right. The longer this goes on, I would prefer the Raiders just draft a back in the draft coming up. The draft is deep at the running back position and the Raiders don’t need the distraction of a drama queen like Lynch, their punter is bad enough. This new Raider team is built on high character players, don’t need Lynch messing with the team’s new culture.

    —————————————————————-

    The telephone had already become irrelevant.

    But that didn’t stop the NFL from permanently duping gullible people with the sensational use of the word “destroyed” in the form of an orchestrated media saturation campaign.

    The NFL already had the 2 telephones that were owned by the Patriots and were used by the 2 equipment guys. It appears that duped people believe that one phone is not enough to see all the messages that were exchanged between two phones.

    As an added bonus, the NFL also had the log information that Tom Brady provided. Which means that the NFL already had 2 sources to see all information related to conversations with the equipment guys.

    Plus the NFL is not law enforcement and doesn’t have the right to see a personal telephone. Fools must have also assumed that the NFL could search his house with a film crew tagging along if they wanted to.

    Overheard echoing in the empty minds of fools everywhere….”but…but….but…phones are little so you surrender all your privacy & property rights because phones are portable.”

    A phone that is never going to be examined regardless of its condition is irrelevant. He’s rich enough to afford the newest phones as soon as they are available. Only a dope would not wipe wipe a replaced phone.

    Then the Patriots’ coach, Bill Belichick, the cheating program’s mastermind, spoke. He said he had merely misinterpreted a league rule, explaining that he thought it was legal to videotape opposing teams’ signals as long as the material wasn’t used in real time. Few in the room bought it. Belichick said he had made a mistake — “my mistake.”

    Raider fan is still upset because he was counting on seeing all of Tom Brady’s family photographs and his professional athlete & celebrity filled address book. Apparently silly Raider fan doesn’t understand property & privacy rights.

    The NFL would have leaked that information in 10 seconds. So they were never going to see the phone. Plus the NFL didn’t have the right to see someone’s private phone so they were never going to have that information.

    Tom Brady could have framed his old phone and hung in on the wall in his house and the NFL wasn’t going ever going to see it.

    Thats false, you just have an unhealthy obsession. I have been reading various PFT articles and not being that interested in the Patriots most of what I read had zero to do with the Patriots. Yet I kept noticing that all these stories made you think of the Patriots because on every one of them your comments came back to that.

He said he had merely misinterpreted a league rule, explaining that he thought it was legal to videotape opposing teams’ signals as long as the material wasn’t used in real time. Few in the room bought it. Belichick said he had made a mistake — “my mistake.”

    Although occasionally mentioned to this day by crybabies it was almost 10 years ago that a camera needed to be moved a few feet to comply with a poorly worded memo.

    The Patriots received a lesson in human nature when they told a petty tyrant that his memo was poorly worded. The Patriots were subsequently over punished when that petty memo writing tyrant got to also be the judge and the jury.

    Thats false, you just have an unhealthy obsession. I have been reading various PFT articles and not being that interested in the Patriots most of what I read had zero to do with the Patriots. Yet I kept noticing that all these stories made you think of the Patriots because on every one of them your comments came back to that. I admit I dont know you but it really stood out the pattern you set. I gotta think your breakfast cereal makes you think of the Patriots, and a bird flying by, and sunrise, the stars at night…

    Yeah, I’ve noticed that too. The Patriots definitely own most of this guy’s head. But that’s his problem. The rest of you guys should just disengage, don’t feed the troll so to speak. Enjoy the PFT content and ignore him.

    Everyone gets it.
    Over 10 years ago…a camera was in the wrong location for a portion of the 1st game of the season. It gets old when 10 years later, crybabies continue to bring it up. The team was already over punished for not following the memo.

    Maybe it’s time to for you to turn your attention to actual cheating which occurred more recently. You know when the NFL blamed a team for what the weather did to footballs. And then the NFL hid the PSI report from the 2015 season because the data showed that footballs always drop PSI when it’s cold.

    You know the cheating where the NFL told the “56 deflategate lies” and then took away a 1st round draft pick. You know the cheating were the NFL plans on taking a 4th round draft pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. You know the cheating where the NFL still hasn’t released the PSI information from the 2015 season.

    n the popular retelling of Spygate, Jets coach Eric Mangini, a former Belichick assistant, ratted out his ex-boss. In reality, Mangini called Belichick before their September 2007 game to warn him not to film New York’s signals. And by that point the league was already eyeing the Patriots.

    In 2006, after several teams—including the Giants, who caught the Patriots videotaping coaches’ signals in a preseason game that year—complained to the league about New England’s video espionage, NFL senior vice president for football operations Ray Anderson issued a memo reminding teams that “video taping of any type, including but not limited to taping of an opponent’s offensive or defensive signals, is prohibited on the sidelines, in the coaches’ booth, in the locker room, or at any other locations accessible to club staff members during the game.”

    Two months later Packers security in Green Bay noticed a man filming with a small handheld camera on the sideline. When the man was confronted, he said the Patriots coaches wanted him to capture field conditions. In the second quarter security saw him apparently filming signals from a tunnel in an end zone corner and stopped him again.

    “The guy’s giving signals in front of 80,000 people, OK? So we filmed him making signals out in front of 80,000 people like there were a lot of other teams doing at that time, too. Forget about that. If we were wrong, then we’ve been disciplined for that. “

Halftime, they broke it down, and in the second half, they called plays based on knowing whether we were gonna blitz or not.”

    Thomas also went on to say that there should be asterisks next to two of Belichick’s Super Bowl wins and admitted that he is a “decent coach,” even though he thinks that Belichick is a cheater.

    Yes yes we know. There are other guys for whom the Pats have boogie man’d their heads into paranoid delusions. But the point being made here is that for you its deeper than that. You they completely own like a piece or property. You put a considerable amount of your life into reading every article trying to figure out how to make it about the Patriots. If you cant shake it then it will invade and color everything in your life which will catch up. The Patriots are fine with or without you its no difference to them.

    More evidence patriots* cheating

    In fact, former Patriots video assistant Matt Walsh turned over eight tapes of alleged filming, covering six games (including the 2002 AFC Championship Game) going back 20 September 2000. I say “alleged” because Goodell destroyed those tapes, so we’ll never really know what they showed.

    It’s not as if the Patriots cheating ends with “Deflategate” and “Spygate.” What about “Rostergate” (which I just made up), when the Patriots were outed by multiple former players after the 2013 season about how Belichick and the team reports injuries?

    More evidence of patriot detractor stupidity

    Stupidgate – where countless individuals were so stupid that they lacked a basic understanding of 7th grade science that they were easily duped into believing that footballs don’t drop PSI when taken outside on cold days.

    Despite videos being posted online showing footballs drop PSI when placed in a refrigerator countless nimrods still subscribe to Roger Goodell science denying belief that someone let air out of footballs.

    One video can be found on the popular online video site. Just search for “DEFLATE GATE & WHY SCIENCE SAYS THE PATRIOTS DID NOT TAMPER WITH FOOTBALLS”

    @factpurveyor.

    Spygate irks me more than deflategate since goodell is a crock commish, it’s just that their tactics are very shady and they have also been caught with bad locations before filming walkthroughs. If that isn’t suspicious, I don’t know what is.

    Goodell you say. Is this the same angel we’ve been watching and listening to the last 15+ years. Yeah, seems like a respectable and honest man, I mean if you didn’t read any of his ‘under oath’ testimony during the trials. Why was Tom Brady only under oath, I mean if Goodell had nothing to hide right?

    I wish that scum bag didn’t destroy any tapes. Jay Glazer played some on a loop years ago, bunch of horrible footage, looking at cheerleaders and such, nothing to see.

    Your hatred clouds your beliefs and ability to look into details because you ‘can’t handle the truth.’

    Like the redskins and cowboys getting punished in an uncapped year, to saints suspensions, warnings for Vikings and panthers heating balls in public, Hell, even last year Giants and Steelers had game with ball deflation and no investigation, etc.

    So what? Why dont we drop the ‘alleged’ and assume every bit of it is true. That period mentioned 2000-2002 was back when taping was entirely legal so who cares? I would even suggest there was a lot more than what he turned over. Im pretty sure they didnt just start in 2000 either because video cameras were invented long before that. But who cares since it was legal?

    “IR gate” is a joke if you believe that you are throwing shade on the Patriots.

    nobody follows the IR rules more closely than BB.

    After BB was fined for not reporting a paper cut on players finger….BB reports every minor injury.

    So please don’t mention IR scandals unless you mention:

    Steelers not disclosing Le’Veon Bell’s groin injury.

    Or the Colts not disclosing Lucks broken ribs.

    No judge will allow people to equate property damage with assault. They are two completely different criminal charges. The only crime he can be charge with his destruction of personal property. The phone screen was allegedly cracked but not broken. This is one of those judge judy cases for small claims. Basically Lynch will have to buy the kid a new phone.
