How about current Bills running back, Marshawn Lynch, who — like Henry — also came into the league with a domestic-violence history? (Lynch's case, filed when he was still at Cal, was thrown out by the courts.) Marshawn was one of those guys who came into the NFL draft with so-called character questions. He ended up rather quickly validating those concerns by getting involved in a hit-and-run after his rookie year, striking a woman with his Porsche in Buffalo and then fleeing the scene.
He's now been popped again, this time for misdemeanor gun possession. Police in Culver City, California, approached a parked black Mercedes with tinted windows and no license plate. When someone inside rolled down the window, the cops found Lynch and two other guys — and a strong smell of marijuana. A further search produced four blunts and a loaded handgun, which belonged to Lynch.
No charges on the pot, but Lynch was slapped with one count each of having a concealed firearm in a vehicle, carrying a loaded firearm in a vehicle in a city, and carrying a loaded, unregistered firearm. This whole thing is a little weak, but we've got to give Lynch 25 points here — this isn't his first rodeo.
