I just spoke with Bellevue Police Department Public Information Officer Seth Tyler regarding this morning’s start of an investigation of Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch for his potential involvement in an alleged assault early Sunday in the Seattle suburb.

Tyler said the investigating officer received the case just this morning, so the department is not speculating how long its investigation might last. Tyler said Bellevue PD is planning to release a statement of its findings on the investigation when it is completed.
