LAS VEGAS (AP) — A November trial has been scheduled for former NFL running back Marshawn Lynch on misdemeanor charges following his arrest a year ago on suspicion of drunken driving when he was found in a damaged luxury sports car on a downtown Las Vegas street.
Las Vegas Municipal Court Judge Cedric Kerns on Monday scheduled a two-day trial beginning Nov. 8 on the charges, which also include failure to drive in a travel lane and driving an unregistered vehicle.
Lynch pleaded not guilty in March to all charges and did not attend the brief scheduling hearing, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported. His defense attorneys, Richard Schonfeld and David Chesnoff, declined to comment to the newspaper and The Associated Press.
Police said Lynch, now 37, was found asleep about 7:30 a.m. Aug. 9, 2022, behind the wheel of an “undriveable” 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 that had one front wheel missing and a rear wheel damaged and “about to fall off.”
