Ivan Golde, the attorney for Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch is implying that race played a role in his DUI arrest. Yep you read that right, Golde is suggesting race played a role in Lynch getting arrested for driving under the influence. How’s that the case I have nooooooo idea.
Things are getting racial in the Marshawn Lynch DUI case — the NFL star’s lawyer tells TMZ he believes the two white cops who arrested Lynch may have had it out for the running back because of the color of his skin.
Lynch was pulled over by the California Highway Patrol in Oakland back in July and was arrested for drunk driving after officers say his blood alcohol level was above the legal limit. In the police report, cops said they had noticed the Seattle Seahawks running back had been swerving all over the road.
Ivan Golde, tells us “There may be an issue of police misconduct/racism based on the fact that you have two white cops [and] an African American defendant by himself.”
