Seattle Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch Arrested For Suspected DUI

Marshawn Lynch is in trouble with the law again. Good God Beast Mode.

Susan Schena reports from the Dublin Patch.

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.

This is the third time in the NFL that Lynch has had a legal situation. Lynch has had one black driving mark on his record when he struck a pedestrian with his car late at night in Buffalo when he was a member of the Bills in 2008; Lynch's lost his driver's license as a result of this infraction. The following season, he pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor weapons charge in 2009 when he was stopped and searched by police officers.

While this is Lynch's first DUI, this being his third public infraction could come back to bite him. The league suspended him three games for the weapons charge, and don't be surprised if he invites further punishment from the NFL for his actions here. The league is kind to first offenders, but not so much to players with a sustained history of off-the-field misconduct.
