Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch was detained by security Sunday night after he, rap star Mistah F.A.B. and their entourages were involved in a fight at a San Francisco nightclub. Sources at the club stated that Lynch, F.A.B. and their crew stormed the backstage guard, went onstage and assaulted DJ Mustard during a performance allegedly because of comments Mustard previously had made on a New York City radio show. Although no arrests were made, Lynch and his crew were escorted out of the club by security.
It goes from bad to worse these days for Lynch who has been a hot topic in fantasy circles lately with the announcement from Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell that there will be a new running back-by-committee situation in Seattle this season. Bevell, along with head coach Pete Carroll, have doled out tremendous praise onto back-up running back Christine Michael and want him used more often in the offensive scheme which would obviously pull touches away from Lynch. Couple that news with lifestyle choices such as joining your rapper friend in a plot to assault another musician and you've got yourself a recipe for a major career tailspin. All too often we've seen quality athletes such as Lynch ruin their careers with poor choices off the field and a situation like this incident is no different as it always seems to lead to some sort of escalation and/or retaliation.
