Former NFL star Marshawn Lynch has been arrested and taken into custody for driving under the influence.
The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department announced the arrest in a tweet on Tuesday.
“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, on suspicion of impaired driving,” wrote LVMPD. “During the course of the investigation, officers determined that Lynch was impaired and made an arrest. Lynch was transported to the Las Vegas City Jail and booked for driving under the influence.”
The NFL world reacted on Twitter to this news.
“At least the legend isn’t hurt,” one fan wrote.
“Uh oh… looks like Marshawn Lynch is in trouble!” added another.
“No man. Not my dog BeastMode,” said another.
Over 12 NFL seasons, Lynch amassed 10,413 rushing yards and 85 touchdowns. His last time on the NFL gridiron came during a brief stint with the Seattle Seahawks in 2019.
Lynch was announced Monday as a “special correspondent” for the Seahawks broadcast team. The former All-Pro running back has also been rumored as a possible analyst for Amazon’s Thursday Night Football.
