Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch’s court date scheduled for today regarding a motion to suppress evidence in Alameda County Court was continued to Nov. 1, Eric Williams of the Tacoma Tribune reports.  This according to Teresa Drenick, assistant district attorney for the Alameda County District Attorney’s office.

Lynch’s court date stems from charges filed against him for driving under the influence of alcohol in July of last year.

Lynch’s next court date regarding the matter is a pre-trial hearing scheduled for Thursday, but the parties may negotiate and resolve the matter outside of court at anytime.

If the parties cannot come to an agreement, then the next likely step would be that the matter would be set for trial. At this time, no trial date has been set, but a readiness hearing is scheduled for Dec. 27.

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.

After failing a preliminary sobriety test, Lynch was taken into custody and transported to the Alameda County Sheriff department’s north county jail in Oakland. Lynch submitted to a breathalyzer test, and the test came back positive that his blood alcohol content level was over the state’s legal limit of 0.08.
