Marshawn’s current run in with the law will likely put him in NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell’s cross hairs and will likely lead to at least a 4 game suspension if convicted.

On March 4th 2012 Marshawn was rewarded with a 4-year $31 million dollar contract for his on the field production as well as his ability to keep himself out of trouble since being traded to the Seahawks.

Prior to joining the Seahawks he had been; accused of sexual assault of his girlfriend though the district attorney declined to press charges, was investigated in 2008 for a hit and run accident and had his license suspended for a year after pleading guilty.

He was then arrested in 2009 where he later pled guilty to misdemeanor gun charges and was sentenced to three years probation.

The NFL suspended him three games for the weapons charge.

Also in 2009 he was accused of stealing $20 from a police officers wife but no charges were ever filed.

The Seahawks are aware of the incident.

#Seahawks release a statement saying “We are aware of the situation with Marshawn and still gathering information.”
