Seahawks Marshawn Lynch Arrested on Suspicion of DUI
Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch was pulled over at 3:20 a.m. Saturday in Oakland, Calif. After his performance on field-sobriety tests, Lynch was arrested on suspicion of DUI.
The Seahawks are aware of Lynch’s arrest, but there was no comment other than to say the team is gathering information.
Lynch was not available for comment.
Danny O’Neil said today in the Seattle Times:
Lynch was driving a white 2012 Ford van, traveling north in his hometown of Oakland, Calif., when he was pulled over at 3:20 a.m. by the California Highway Patrol.
The arresting officer reported observing the van weaving in and out of its lane, nearly colliding with two other vehicles. The officer alleged Lynch exhibited “objective signs of intoxication.” The officer said Lynch was placed under arrest based on those signs and his performance in field-sobriety tests.
Lynch was arrested at 3:42 a.m. and booked into North County Jail at 5:15 a.m., according to records. He was cited and released. The Alameda County District Attorney will decide whether to charge Lynch once it receives and reviews the report from the highway patrol.
