Quote: Authorities undermine claim against Lynch
Posted by Mike Florio on January 10, 2010 4:04 PM ET
On Saturday, the Buffalo News reported that the wife of a Buffalo police officer claims that Bills running back Marshawn Lynch stole $20 from her in a Hamburg, New York TGI Friday's, and that a complaint to that effect was made to authorities.
In response, Lynch's agent, Doug Hendrickson, called the charges "false and entirely malicious," and Hendrickson called the alleged victim's husband a "racist rogue cop."
Now, WGR 550 in Buffalo reports that the Town of Hamburg has denied via a statement that any such complaint was made.
"The facts reported in the January 9th edition of The Buffalo News regarding an incident between Marshawn Lynch and Mrs. Crawford are not consistent with those conveyed to our department by Mrs. Crawford," the statement reads. "The Town of Hamburg Police has received no complaint from anyone directly involved.
"Respecting Mrs. Crawford's wishes, our agency will continue to decline further comment on the specifics of the situation."
For now, then, it looks like Hendrickson's position possibly has plenty of merit. Stay tuned.
