Ex-NFL Star Marshawn Lynch Busted in Vegas for DUI

Former NFL star Marshawn Lynch was arrested in Las Vegas on Tuesday morning. Las Vegas police claim he was driving under the influence.

Lynch, 36, faces four charges, including DUI, driving an unregistered vehicle, failure to stay in his lane and failure to surrender proof of security. As of Tuesday afternoon, he remains in custody pending $3,381 bail.

According to TMZ Sports, the former running back was pulled over at 7:30 a.m. PST for erratic driving. Police said his car was bumping into street curbs near Fairfield and West Utah avenues, not far from the Stat hotel-casino. Lynch reportedly did not submit to a breathalyzer, but TMZ reported that blood was drawn in order to determine blood alcohol content.

Zone Blitzed

Once police established impairment, Lynch was arrested and taken to the City of Las Vegas Detention Center. The mugshot released by police appears to show Lynch struggling to keep his eyes open.

“Through the course of the investigation, officers determined that Lynch was impaired and conducted an arrest,” police tweeted.

Lynch was also arrested for DUI in July 2012 in Seattle, while playing for the Seahawks. That charge was later reduced to reckless driving on a plea deal. In 2008, Lynch had his driver’s license revoked for failing to stop after striking a woman with his car in Buffalo, New York. Lynch, who was leaving Buffalo’s bar district around 3:30 a.m., claimed he thought the woman was dancing in the street and didn’t know he hit her.

Another Career Fumble

Lynch, the Buffalo Bills’ first-round draft pick in 2007 out of California, played 12 NFL seasons with the Seahawks, Bills and Oakland Raiders. He amassed 10,413 rushing yards and 85 touchdowns. He made five Pro Bowls and won a Super Bowl with the Seahawks during the 2013 season.

Nicknamed “Beast Mode,” Lynch opened an apparel store by that name in 2021 at the Shoppes at Mandalay Place on the Las Vegas Strip. He also co-owns two teams in two minor-league indoor footballs leagues: the Beasts of Fan Controlled Football, and the Indoor Football League’s Bay Area Panthers.

Lynch’s most recent arrest comes just one day after the Seahawks announced they had hired him as a correspondent to produce “creative content for a variety of projects.”
