Former Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch was arrested early Tuesday morning in Las Vegas on suspicion of driving under the influence.
According to the Las Vegas Metro Police Department, Lynch did not submit a breathalyzer test, though he later provided a blood sample.
Lynch was reportedly stopped after being seen mounting the sidewalk while driving impaired. LVPD released a statement on Lynch’s arrest — bail was set at $3,381.
“The LVMPD conducted a vehicle stop at Fairfield Avenue and West Utah Avenue (near Wyoming and Las Vegas Blvd) on a driver, later identified as Marshawn Lynch, for suspected driver impairment. …
“Through the course of the investigation, officers determined that Lynch was impaired and conducted an arrest. Lynch was transported to the Las Vegas City Jail and booked for driving under the influence.”
In his 12 seasons in the League, Lynch racked up 10,413 rushing yards and 94 total touchdowns. The 36-year-old was a five-time Pro Bowler and established himself as a fan favorite in Seattle and across the NFL.
