It seems that we can’t go a couple of days without a pro athlete getting in trouble with the law. Now we have another name to add as ex NFL player Marshawn Lynch was busted for DUI.

TMZ reports that the former player was picked up on Tuesday in Las Vegas on DUI charges. It was not noted what his BAC was at the time of his arrest.

The Las Vegas Police Department said that the 36-year-old player was pulled over on Fairfield Avenue and West Utah Avenue at 7:25 AM on Tuesday morning. He was driving into curbs and on the side of the road before he was pulled over.

After speaking with Lynch, cops believe he was driving under the influence … and was taken to jail.


It was also reported that, “Lynch did not submit to a breathalyzer, but we’re told he had his blood drawn.” We are uncertain if he has been released as of this writing.

At this time, we are still waiting for new information as this is a still-developing story. Keep checking back with Thirsty for more

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
