BUFFALO, N.Y. — Buffalo Bills running back Marshawn Lynch reportedly has been accused of stealing $20 from a police officer’s wife.
The Buffalo News reported Saturday on its Web site that a complaint to police said Lynch took money from the woman last month at a TGI Friday’s restaurant in Hamburg, N.Y. The woman’s husband, Buffalo Police Sgt. William Crawford, filed the complaint with Hamburg police a day after, but they delayed giving a statement to detectives until Wednesday.
The incident reportedly occurred Dec. 7.
Hamburg police declined to comment but confirmed that Crawford made a complaint.
Lynch’s agent made the following statement regarding the accusation.
ProFootballTalk.com reported Lynch’s agent is speaking out about the incident. Doug Hendrickson is calling the allegations “false and entirely malicious” and “slanderous.”Hendrickson goes on to tell ProFootballTalk that he is a “racist rogue cop” and that the cop is “very dangerous and citizens of Buffalo should be scared that this guy is on the force.”
