RENTON, Wash. (AP) — The Seattle Seahawks say accusations that star running back Marshawn Lynch was involved in an assault and damage of personal property are “bogus.”

In a statement Tuesday morning the team says it has “the utmost respect for the investigative process,” but that after speaking with Lynch the Seahawks concluded the allegations were without merit.

The Bellevue Police Department released a statement Monday saying the alleged incident took place around 2:30 a.m. Sunday and that Lynch is alleged to have been involved. Bellevue police are investigating.

The incident was reported by a female about 12 hours after it allegedly took place at a downtown Bellevue apartment. Police say there was no domestic violence or sexual assault involved in the allegation.
