Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch, who was charged with DUI in Oakland, Calfornia Wednesday, has released a statement through the team.



"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."
-- Marshawn Lynch, Seattle Seahawks

Lynch was arrested early Saturday morning in Oakland. His arraignment is scheduled for August 14th.
