Former National Football League (NFL) running back Marshawn Lynch was arrested in Las Vegas on Tuesday on suspicion of driving under the influence.

According to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD), officers approached Lynch just before 7:23 a.m. at Fairfield Avenue and West Utah Avenue and "determined that Lynch was impaired and conducted an arrest." USA Today reported that Lynch's bail was set at $3,381. An arraignment hearing is set for Dec. 7. The LVMPD also confirmed the arrest on its verified Twitter account.

The former Seattle Seahawks player was transported to the Las Vegas City Jail. Lynch is facing charges of DUI, failure to refuse or surrender and failure to drive in a travel lane. Additionally, it was revealed that the vehicle he was driving was not registered. He was driving a black 2020 Shelby GT500, a model of the Ford Mustang, during the arrest.

According to TMZ Sports sources, the 36-year-old American footballer was "driving into curbs on the side of the road before the traffic stop." Lynch did not submit to a breathalyzer, but he had his blood drawn. Lynch was also arrested in 2012 for driving under the influence in Oakland, wherein police found that his blood alcohol level was above the .08 limit while driving.

Lynch, who has the nickname "Beast Mode," played for 12 seasons in the NFL league from 2007 to 2019. He won Super Bowl XLVIII with the Seahawks in Feb. 2014. He also played for the Buffalo Bills, Seattle Seahawks and Oakland Raiders. He is widely recognized as a five-time Pro Bowler and two-time NFL rushing touchdown leader.

Lynch rushed for 10,413 yards, 85 rushing TDs, 2,214 receiving yards, and nine touchdowns during the regular season of his career. He is a native of Oakland, California; he left the Raiders before the team relocated in 2020 to Las Vegas and finished his career in Seattle.

Meanwhile, Lynch appeared to be busy with his personal life as he owns and manages two professional football clubs. He has been working as a team owner since 2018; he has co-owned the Beasts of Fan Controlled Football (FCF) and the Bay Area Panthers of the Indoor Football League (IFL).
