According to ProFootballTalk.com,

“Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch was observed swerving through traffic and nearly hitting two different vehicles before he was finally pulled over and arrested for driving under the influence before 4 a.m. on Saturday.

The California Highway Patrol says Lynch was driving a Ford Econoline van and had two near collisions with two other vehicles. The arresting officer said Lynch showed “objective signs of intoxication” and failed field sobriety tests. He later submitted to a blood test that showed his blood-alcohol level above the legal limit of .08.

This isn’t the first time Lynch has driven dangerously. In 2008 he hit a pedestrian outside a bar, then drove off.

Lynch is scheduled for a preliminary court appearance on August 14. As a repeat violator of the NFL’s personal-conduct policy, he’s likely facing league discipline as well. Following his last run-in with the law, a 2009 guilty plea to a misdemeanor weapons charge, he was suspended for three games.”

  • We will see. And Adrian Peterson was belligerent and shoved cops…allegedly. I have no faith in one cops recounting of the events. It’s sad that I feel this way but I just don’t trust the police in these matters anymore. Black man in dreads + ford econoline van……..I don’t know. When I played college football, if I had my best friend in the car (he is black) and we went to a particular part of town, every time and I mean every time we would get pulled over. Neither of us drank alcohol so we ended up making a game of it. Funny thing though, by myself, same car and same part of town…….never pulled over. Is my distrust of how the police see things justified? I don’t know. It is what it is. We just need to wait until aug. 14 to get the whole story.
