Marshawn Lynch: 'I want to apologize'

Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch released a statement through the team regarding his recent arrest, which resulted in DUI charges:

"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 on Saturday morning in Oakland, Calif., and charges were filed against him on Wednesday by the Alameda County District Attorney. His arraignment is scheduled for Aug. 14.
