Lynch pleads guilty to driving infraction

Posted Jun 27, 2008

It's been nearly a month since an SUV registered to Marshawn Lynch struck a pedestrian in the early morning hours near Buffalo's downtown bar district. Today, the Bills running back finally acknowledged it was he who was behind the wheel on May 31. Buffalo Football Report has more...

The Buffalo Bills' Marshawn Lynch has admitted he was behind the wheel of his SUV when he hit a woman and left the scene a month ago.

Lynch apologized to the victim Friday before heading into the Department of Motor Vehicles office to plead guilty to a traffic infraction -- failure to exercise due care.

The plea was part of a deal reached by Lynch's lawyer and the Erie County District Attorney's office last week that will allow the running back to avoid a criminal charge.

The deal was announced shortly before a grand jury was to begin hearing testimony from Bills players and executives to determine whether Lynch was driving the Porsche Cayenne in the city's bar district early on May 31.
