Bills (http://www.sportsline.com/nfl/teams/page/BUF) running back Marshawn Lynch (http://www.sportsline.com/nfl/players/playerpage/504639) had his driver's license revoked in traffic court on Friday after saying he didn't know he hit someone while driving on a Buffalo street last month.

Administrative Law Judge Thomas Gagola found Lynch's behavior on May 31 "constituted a reckless disregard of human life or property." He also imposed the maximum $100 fine and $50 surcharge after Lynch pleaded guilty to failure to exercise due care toward a pedestrian.

Lynch, the Bills' first-round draft pick in 2007 out of California, was driving his 2008 Porsche Cayenne SUV in the city's bar district at 3:30 a.m. when he struck a 27-year-old Ontario woman and kept going.

"It was raining real hard, there was a dancing pedestrian in the middle of the street," the 22-year-old Lynch said before the hearing. "I slowed down to let her go and continued on my way home. I didn't know my car had hit anyone or anything."

I don't have statistics in front of me, but from what I understand, Lynch - who hit a person, drove off, and caused a cut bad enough that it needed seven stitches - got less of a fine than somebody who gets a ticket for expired tags or a broken tail light.

Yeah, makes sense to me.

look at larry little from the rams..holy ccrap didn't he actually inflict death to someone while driving impaired then hurt someone else in a seperate drunk driving accident and still is playing? if i was driving around the "bar" district at 3:30 in the morning i probly wouldn't have noticed either and im guessing the bar district is not a hangout spot for lawyers.
