Updated August 9, 2022 - 4:05 pm

Former NFL star Marshawn Lynch has been arrested in Las Vegas on suspicion of DUI, according to Las Vegas police.

Police tweeted that they had arrested Lynch during a traffic stop in central Las Vegas, near Fairfield and West Utah avenues, not far from Las Vegas Boulevard South. The exact time of the traffic stop was not immediately clear.

“Through the course of the investigation, officers determined that Lynch was impaired and conducted an arrest,” police tweeted.

Lynch, a running back nicknamed “Beast Mode” who played in the NFL for 12 years, including two seasons with the Raiders, was booked at the Las Vegas city jail on a DUI count.

He was cited on charges of driving under the influence, failing to surrender proof of security, driving an unregistered vehicle and failure to drive in the travel lane, according to Las Vegas Municipal Court online records.

Lynch has been released from custody on his own recognizance, court records show. He is scheduled to appear in court on Dec. 7. An attorney for Lynch was not listed in municipal court records.

Last year, Lynch opened a store on the Strip.

Further details were not released.
