BELLEVUE, Wash. — Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch has been cleared of any involvement in an alleged assault and property damage case, the Bellevue Police Department announced Wednesday night.

Bellevue police had said Monday it was investigating Lynch in connection with an incident alleged to have occurred at 2:30 a.m. Sunday.  A woman reported to police that her personal property was damaged during some sort of assault in a Bellevue apartment and Lynch’s name apparently was mentioned.

No domestic violence or sexual assault was involved in the allegation.

“The Bellevue Police Department has determined that Marshawn Lynch was not involved in last weekend’s property damage and assault case in any way,” the police said in a statement issued Wednesday night.  “This case remains an open and active investigation. We appreciate the cooperation we have received from Mr. Lynch and the Seahawks organization during this investigation.”

On Tuesday, the Seahawks organization said it was confident Lynch was innocent in the case.

“While we maintain the utmost respect for the investigative process, after speaking with Marshawn, we are comfortable these accusations are bogus,” the team said in a release Tuesday.

The case has been assigned a detective, and police are investigating the alleged incident. No arrests have been made.
