Former Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch arrested for suspected DUI

Police officers stopped a vehicle driven by Lynch near Las Vegas Boulevard.

LAS VEGAS — Former Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch was arrested for allegedly driving under the influence in Las Vegas on Tuesday.

Police officers stopped a vehicle driven by Lynch not far from Las Vegas Boulevard, Las Vegas Metro Police Department tweeted.

Officials determined Lynch, 36, was “disabled” and booked him in the Las Vegas City Jail.

According to court documents, Lynch was also subpoenaed for failing to surrender and failing to navigate a lane.

Lynch’s arrest comes a day after the Seahawks announced he would return to the team later this season as a special correspondent. It is unclear whether he will rejoin the team.

Lynch was first traded to the Seahawks in October 2010. In Seattle, he played a pivotal role in the Seahawks’ success, which included the team’s first Super Bowl championship of the 2013 season.

Lynch struggled in his final season in Seattle in 2015, missing nine games through injuries and averaging 3.8 yards per carry.

He sat out the 2016 season but returned in 2017 to play for the Oakland Raiders. He played the first few weeks of the 2018 season but was placed on injured reserve with a groin injury. Lynch had said he plans to retire after the 2018 season.

However, he returned to play for the Seahawks for the 2019 season after the team lost three running backs to injuries.

In January 2020, Lynch said he wasn’t sure about his future in the NFL following his surprise comeback.

Lynch was a five-time Pro Bowler and had 10,413 rushing yards and 85 rushing touchdowns with the Seahawks, Buffalo Bills and Oakland Raiders from 2007-2019.
