arrested after officers confronted him and two other men in a car
and found a loaded firearm in the vehicle.
Lynch was arrested Wednesday for possession of a concealed
firearm after officers determined the gun belonged to him. He was
released that night on $35,000 bail.
Culver City police did not immediately return a phone message
seeking information about why officers first confronted Lynch and
Lynch's lawyer, M. Gerald Schwartzbach, said his client was not
involved in a traffic accident and was in California visiting
A Bills spokesman had no comment.
