NFL Star Marshawn Lynch Arrested For Suspected DUI

Seattle Seahawks running back was busted in Oakland, booked at Dublin's Santa Rita Jail.


Seattle Seahawks star and Bay-Area hometown hero Marshawn Lynch was arrested Saturday in Oakland for allegedly driving under the influence, according to the Alameda County Sheriff's Office.

Oakland-native Lynch, 26, who two days earlier presented a scholarship to an Oakland gunshot victim, was arrested by the California Highway Patrol and booked at the Santa Rita Jail in Dublin, said Sgt. Ray Kelly of the sheriff's department.

County records indicate he was cited for the charges and released on Sunday.

Lynch has six years of pro-football experience. He was drafted as a rookie in 2007 to the Buffalo Bills, after finishing his college career at the University of California, Berkeley where he was the school's second all-time career rusher with 3,230 yards, according to sports reports.

On Thursday, Lynch, along with San Francisco 49ers quarterback Josh Johnson, presented in an emotional ceremony before a crowd of 200 people a $500 scholarship to college-bound Oakland gunshot victim Gerald Williams, according to news accounts.

A $500 scholarship given by a guy who has a 4 year/31 million contract? Even that $500 he apparently split with another player. Gerald Williams could do better with a collection plate going around at any sporting event. In any event this isn’t the first time Lynch’s driving has caused problems. He has had a hit and run accident, weapons related charges, etc. There must be better homegrown talent than this to motivate local unfortunates.
