A judge in Alameda County Court in California denied a motion to suppress evidence and dismiss Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch's DUI case Friday, according to his attorney, Ivan Golde.

A trial date of Dec. 27 has been set for the case. However, Golde said he likely will get a continuance so the trial does not take place during the season.

Lynch's court date stems from charges filed against him for allegedly driving under the influence of alcohol on July 14, 2012.

Lynch, 27, was arrested in the early morning by the California Highway Patrol when a police officer allegedly observed him driving north on Interstate 880 in Oakland, weaving in and out of lanes in a white Ford van and nearly colliding with two cars.

After failing a preliminary sobriety test, Lynch was taken into custody and transported to the Alameda County Sheriff Department's North County Jail in Oakland. Lynch submitted to a breathalyzer test, which came back positive with his blood alcohol content over the state's legal limit of 0.08, according to police.
