Marshawn Lynch Arrest: Seahawks RB Charged With DUI

Things have gone from bad to worse for Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch as it was reported on Wednesday that the Pro-Bowl back will indeed be charged with DUI after being arrested this past Sunday for suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol.

Per Dave Mahler on Twitter:

According to an incident report released by the California Highway Patrol on Tuesday, Lynch was seen driving a Ford Econoline van, nearly colliding with two other vehicles while weaving in and out of lanes.

Authorities say Lynch was pulled over around 3:20 a.m. PT Saturday in Emeryville. After field sobriety tests came up suspicious, Lynch was arrested and booked. He took a chemical test instead of a blood test.

Lynch signed a four-year contract in March worth $31 million, $18 million of that guaranteed. Lynch's prior history of legal troubles may force the NFL to suspend him, but that remains unclear at this point.
