Marshawn Lynch arrested for a DUI; still a retard

Per NFL:

Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch was arrested Saturday morning on suspicion of driving under the influence in Oakland, an Alameda County Sheriff’s spokesman told the San Jose Mercury News on Monday.

Lynch was arrested by the California Highway Patrol on Interstate 880 and taken to Santa Rita Jail, where he was cited and released, the newspaper reported.

A CHP spokesman told the Mercury News that Lynch submitted to a blood test after he was in custody. Lynch was found to be over the .08 legal limit, although no specific number was given.

Calls to the Alameda County Sheriff’s department by on Monday were unsuccessful.

In a statement to The Associated Press, the Seahawks wrote, “We are aware of the situation with Marshawn and still gathering information.”

Lynch, a former star running back at the University of California-Berkeley, previously had his license revoked in 2008 for failure to exercise due care toward a pedestrian after he hit a 27-year-old woman and kept driving. In 2009, Lynch was suspended for three games after pleading guilty to a misdemeanor gun charge.

Lynch, 26, signed a four-year, $31 million contract with the Seahawks in March. The deal includes $18 million in guaranteed money.
