Oakland native and former NFL star Marshawn Lynch was arrested Tuesday in Las Vegas for suspected DUI.
Lynch was allegedly hitting curbs before being arrested, according to Las Vegas police. According to reports, the 36-year-old Lynch is accused of failing or refusing to turn over proof of security, operating an unregistered vehicle, and failing to drive in a travel lane.
“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,” Las Vegas police said in a statement. “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.”
Photos shared by TMZ show the vehicle Lynch was allegedly driving missing multiple tires. According to TMZ images, Lynch's 2020 Shelby GT500's front-left wheel's rim seemed to be sitting on the ground.
Lynch is set to appear in court for the charges in December.
