Former NFL running back Marshawn Lynch was arrested and charged with driving under the influence by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department on Tuesday morning at 7:25 a.m. PT.
Per TMZ Sports: Lynch was allegedly driving into roadside curbs before police stopped him. Officers spoke to Lynch and believed he was under the influence, leading to the booking at Las Vegas City Jail. Lynch had his blood drawn and did not submit to a breathalyzer.
