Marshawn Lynch was arrested on a DUI charge. However, cops revealed that the NFL star had another accident before his arrest. The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Dept. officers state that Lynch crashed his expensive Lambo six months before his arrest.

The officers revealed in police documents stating that Lynch drove a 2014 Lamborghini Aventador on February 22nd. He ended up hitting a curb and stopped the vehicle in a landscape area. TMZ Sports revealed the police documents.

Officers added that Lynch wasn’t the first one to take responsibility. Instead, a man who claimed he was Lynch’s cousin first said that he was behind the crash. He explained that it was a U-turn attempt gone very wrong.

The cops didn’t trust that version of the story. They further added that a black van came to the scene and picked someone up from the Lamborghini. Upon further inquiry, the man who was picked up said that he was already in the van.

The man changed his story again, saying that “the van came to pick up a passenger that was in the car.” Later on, Lynch came to the traffic bureau and “took full responsibility for the collision.” He blamed a lack of familiarity for the crash.

The man further explained that he left the scene because he didn’t want to be recorded by the hoard of people around the crash. This was quite a story, and a prequel to Marshawn Lynch’s well-publicized arrest.

8 News later provided the footage of the crash site. Lynch’s attorneys, Richard Schonfeld and David Chesnoff claim “this is a non-story” while talking to the outlet. We’re still waiting for an outcome for this whole situation. Keep checking back with Thirsty for more updates.
