Former NFL running back Marshawn Lynch was arrested in Las Vegas on Thursday morning for driving under the influence. Early in the morning, Lynch was spotted driving his car up on curbs and police pulled him over and ultimately brought him into Las Vegas City Jail.
Now, photos from the DUI arrest have been released, and they are a sight to behold. First off, Lynch’s mugshot is totally brutal. He looks like a man who is absolutely guilty of driving under the influence, and potentially not sleeping in over 24 hours.
Furthermore, Lynch’s low-riding black sports car has a back-left flat tire and is completely missing the front-right tire. Yep, he was driving directly on the rim.
In addition to driving under the influence, Lynch was also charged with failure/refusal to surrender proof of security, having an unregistered vehicle and failure to drive in a travel lane. According to TMZ, his court date is set for December.
