Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch is due in court Dec. 27 stemming from a drunk driving arrest in Alameda County, California.
Ivan Golde, Lynch's attorney, told ESPN that a judge denied a motion to suppress evidence and dismiss the case. Golde said he plans to seek a continuance to postpone the trial until after the season.
Lynch was arrested in July 2012. A breathalyzer test registered a blood alcohol content over the state's legal limit of 0.08, according to police.
