Former NFL star Marshawn Lynch has been arrested and convicted of driving under the influence.
The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department announced the arrest with a tweet on Tuesday.
“The LVMPD performed a vehicle stop on Fairfield Avenue and West Utah Avenue (near Wyoming and Las Vegas Blvd) on a driver, later identified as Marshawn Lynch, on suspicion of impaired driving,” the LVMPD wrote. “During the investigation, officers determined that Lynch was intoxicated and made an arrest. Lynch was transported to Las Vegas Jail and convicted of driving under the influence.”
The NFL world took to Twitter to react to the news.
“At least the legend is unhurt,” wrote one fan.
“Uh oh…looks like Marshawn Lynch is in trouble!” another added.
“No man. Not my BeastMode dog,” said another.
Over 12 NFL seasons, Lynch had 10,413 rushing yards and 85 touchdowns. His last stint on the NFL grid came during a short stint with the Seattle Seahawks in 2019.
Lynch was announced Monday as “special correspondent” for the Seahawks broadcast team. The former All-Pro running back has also been rumored as a possible analyst for Amazon Thursday night football.
