The Bellevue Police Department on Wednesday cleared Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch after investigating allegations of assault and property damage last weekend.

"The Bellevue Police Department has determined that Marshawn Lynch was not involved in this incident in any way. This case remains an open and active investigation. We appreciate the cooperation we have received from Mr. Lynch and the Seahawks organization during this investigation," Bellevue police said in a short released statement.

Bellevue police on Monday said they were investigating the allegations after a woman claimed Lynch assaulted her and her property at Lynch's downtown Bellevue apartment early Sunday morning.

On Tuesday, the Seattle Seahawks made it clear they did not believe there was any merit to the woman's claims.

“While we maintain the utmost respect for the investigative process, after speaking with Marshawn, we are comfortable these accusations are bogus,” said a Seahawks spokesperson in a one sentence statement.
