Marshawn Lynch is not having a good 2022.
Footage has been obtained by the 8 News Now I-Team that shows that the former Raiders running back had wrecked his luxury car back in February, which led to him receiving a parking ticket.
The 36-year-old was driving on Tropicana Avenue on Feb. 22 when his Lamborghini Aventador “collided with landscaping and a fence,” police wrote in a report.
Footage shows police on the scene trying to determine who was driving it.
Lynch’s cousin initially took responsibility for the crash at the scene. They claim the man told them he tried to make a U-turn and “lost it.” They did not believe him.
In the documents, they said a black van pulled up to the scene to pick somebody up, and when they asked the man about it, they say he told them, “No I came in the van.”
They say the man “then changed his story to say the van came to pick up a passenger that was in the car.”
“Is this your car?” an officer asks the man.
“My cousin,” he replied.
“And you’re saying you were driving?” the officer responded.
“Yup,” the man said.
“Where’s your cousin?” the officer asked.
“He’s probably at home,” the man said.
Police said witnesses saw Lynch walking away from the crash and then “returned and began attempting to remove the vehicle from the landscape area,” the report said.
“Who got picked up in the van?” an officer asked.
“No, I came in the van,” the man said.
“You came in the van — I thought you said you were driving this thing?” the officer replied.
“It’s hard to keep your story straight when you’re lying to me,” the officer said to the man.
Court records show Lynch pleaded nolo contendere — accepting violation but denying guilt — to a charge of stopping, standing, or parking prohibited in specified places, which is a misdemeanor. A judge ordered him to pay a $750 fine.
