The Seattle Seahawks sprang to running back Marshawn Lynch's defense on Tuesday. 

The team claims assault and personal property damage allegations against the Seahawks running back are "bogus," per The Seattle Times' Bob Condotta:

"Allegations of assault and personal property damage made against start running back Marshawn Lynch are 'bogus,' the Seahawks said Tuesday. 

"The team made that declaration in a brief statement it released to the media while the Seahawks, including Lynch, were practicing at the Virginia Mason Athletic Center

"'While we maintain the utmost respect for the investigative process, after speaking with Marshawn, we are comfortable these accusations are bogus,' the statement read. 

"The statement came after a day the Bellevue Police Department released a statement that it was investigating an allegation of assault and personal property damage against Lynch made on Sunday. The incident was alleged to have occurred at 2:30 a.m. Sunday.

"Bellevue Police Department spokesman Seth Tyler said that after seeing the statement that the Seahawks 'can release whatever they want' but the investigation remains ongoing. 

"Tyler said the Seahawks are 'cooperating' and have been 'respectful of the process.'

"Late Tuesday afternoon, he released the following statement:

"'This case remains a high priority for the Bellevue Police Department, and we are committed to bringing this investigation to a quick resolution. We have a full-time detective working this case, and this detective has made significant progress in investigating these allegations fully and thoroughly.'

"Coach Pete Carroll said after the team's practice that he had no additional comment other than to support the statement. 

"'I'm just going along with the statement that we made for right now,' he said. 'Support whatever the statement was from the club.' 

"The incident came during a time when the Seahawks are in training camp, which concludes Wednesday. During training camp, players are housed in a local hotel and are under a curfew, with security guards on hand to enforce a bed check. 

"Tyler said Monday the Bellevue PD planned to talk to Lynch as part of its investigation. He said Tuesday morning the department is not releasing whether it has talked to Lynch yet."

ESPN's Terry Blount added more details on Lynch's situation in his Aug. 12 article:

"The Seahawks had no other comment on the situation. The Bellevue (Washington) Police Department sent out a news release Monday stating Lynch was under investigation over an alleged assault and personal property damage claim.

"Seahawks officials were told the investigation could take 72 hours, but team officials felt confident Tuesday in releasing the statement that the accusations are false. 

"The Bellevue PD on Tuesday afternoon told ESPN's Ed Werder that the investigation is not complete, but ongoing, and that it is a high priority for the department. The police declined to comment on whether they have interviewed Lynch, or plan to do so, saying they are protecting the integrity of their investigation.

"Lynch, 28, was at practice Tuesday morning but did not talk to reporters. 

"He missed the first eight days of training camp after holding out for charges in his contract, which is starting the third year of a $30 million deal. 

"Lynch returned after the Seahawks added $500,000 from 2015 salary to his 2014 money, along with guaranteeing $1 million in bonus incentives for 2014. That raised his 2014 base salary from $5 million to $6.5 million, but team sources said Lynch wanted an additional $5 million in 2014."

Lynch has rushed for 7,389 yards and 58 touchdowns in 104 regular-season games for the Buffalo Bills and Seattle Seahawks, per ESPN stats
