Ivan Golde, attorney for Marshawn Lynch, said that his client pled not guilty to charges of driving under the influence of alcohol in the Alameda County District Courthouse on Wednesday, Eric Williams of the Tacoma Tribune.
Golde moved Lynch’s arraignment date up from August 14 to Wednesday. Lynch was not required to appear in court, and Golde appeared in court for his client.
According to Golde, a status hearing for the case has been scheduled for September 27.
“We’re going to completely prove his innocence, no doubt about it,” Golde said. “It’s going to take some time to get all of the facts unraveled and do all of the investigation.
“This will not interfere with football in anyway. This is an after-the-season issue.”
Lynch, 26, was arrested by the California Highway Patrol early Saturday morning on July 14 when a police officer observed him driving north on Interstate 880 in Oakland, weaving in and out of lanes in a white Ford van, and nearly colliding with two cars.
