Marshawn Lynch: Former NFL running back arrested on suspicion of impaired driving in Las Vegas


Responding officers arrested Lynch on Fairfield Avenue and West Utah Avenue, just north of the famous Las Vegas Strip, and concluded Lynch was intoxicated, the department said. He was arrested, taken to the Las Vegas City Jail and booked, according to police.

The official City of Las Vegas Twitter account posted a booking photo of Lynch on Tuesday.

On Monday, the Seattle Seahawks announced that Lynch had been hired as a special correspondent for his former team to “produce creative content for a variety of projects.” The announcement hadn’t been on the team’s website since Tuesday afternoon.

CNN reached out to Lynch through the Seahawks for comment.

Lynch, nicknamed “Beast Mode” for his fierce and physical running style, played 12 seasons in the NFL, winning Super Bowl XLVIII with the Seahawks in February 2014. Lynch retired in 2019 after playing with the Seahawks, Raiders and Buffalo Bills.

Lynch was an outstanding leader at the University of California at Berkeley.

Lynch is well known for his community work and activism in his hometown of Oakland, Calif., co-founding the Fam 1st Family Foundation to support youth programs in the Bay Area.
