Apparently, the $10.75 million contract that Bills running back Marshawn Lynch signed in 2007 isn't enough.

The running back made news Saturday when the wife of a Buffalo police sergeant filed a complaint with Hamburg, NY police stating Lynch stole $20 from her at a T.G.I. Fridays restaurant in December.

According to the Buffalo News, Lynch stole the $20 from the woman, who was using it to pay her bill after dining with a friend.

"He takes the $20 out of her hand, and my wife says "What are you doing?' And Lynch says 'Don't worry.' When my wife's girlfriend came back to the table, she told her about it," woman's husband stated. "The girlfriend approached Lynch and said, 'Give my friend her money back,' and Lynch threatened her saying 'Do you know who I am? There's going to be consequences.'"

Lynch is currently on three years' probation for a misdemeanor gun possession charge in Los Angeles. the running back is also facing a lawsuit for his highly publicized hit-and-run accident in downtown Buffalo in 2008.
