Buffalo Bills running back Marshawn Lynch reportedly has been accused of stealing $20 from a police officer’s wife.

The Buffalo News reported Saturday on its website that a complaint to police said Lynch took money from the woman last month at a restaurant in Hamburg, N.Y. The woman’s husband, Buffalo Police Sgt. William Crawford, filed the complaint with Hamburg police a day after, but they delayed giving a statement to detectives until Wednesday.

The incident reportedly occurred Dec. 7.

Hamburg police declined to comment but confirmed that Crawford made a complaint.
