BELLEVUE, Wash. - Police have cleared star Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch in an assault and property damage case.

The Bellevue Police Department issued a statement late Wednesday night saying Lynch wasn't involved and that the case remained open.

"The Bellevue Police Department has determined that Marshawn Lynch was not involved in this incident in any way. 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," the statement reads.

Police initially released a statement Monday mentioning Lynch. The Seahawks released a statement a day later saying they believed the accusations to be "bogus" after speaking with Lynch.
