Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch released the following statement regarding his recent arrest for DUI:

"I want to apologize to my family, the Seattle Seahawks, the NFL and the 12th Man for the negative attention resulting from my recent actions. This is not the type of community leader I have been over the last two years or the one I'm striving to become. I want to assure everyone that I will work to be better and look forward to a very exciting, and very successful season with the Seattle Seahawks."

Lynch was arrested on Saturday night in Oakland and has a preliminary court appearance scheduled for Aug. 14. Lynch signed a four-year, $31 million deal with the Seahawks in March and had 12 rushing touchdowns last season.
