Former Seattle Seahawks, Oakland Raiders and Buffalo Bills running back Marshawn Lynch was arrested Tuesday for allegedly driving under the influence in Las Vegas and lives as well as his own were likely saved because of it.
The arrest occurred during a traffic stop at Fairfield Avenue and West Utah Avenue, according to Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD).
“Through the course of the investigation, officers determined that Lynch was impaired and conducted an arrest,” officials from the LVMPD told PEOPLE. “Lynch was transported to the Las Vegas City Jail and booked for driving under the influence.”
Hours later, TMZ Sports would get photos of Lynch’s car that showed it with a missing tire as well as a flat one.
“TMZ Sports has obtained pictures of the 2020 Shelby GT500 cops believe Lynch was driving prior to his arrest … showing the front-left wheel’s rim resting on the pavement, with no tire in sight.
Witnesses tell us they saw Lynch parked at the scene around 5:45 AM — roughly two hours before his arrest — and claim at one point, the running back exited his car to sit on the curb with the driver-side door wide open.”
Lynch was taken to jail and booked for DUI. He is currently facing charges of failure/refusing to surrender proof of security, unregistered vehicle and failure to drive in a travel lane.
His court date has been set for December.
