According to police documents obtained by TMZ Sports, ex-NFL running back Marshawn Lynch was “falling in and out of sleep during questioning and reeking of booze”. Lynch was arrested earlier in the week and charged with DUI. Documents also say that Lynch allegedly admitted to have stolen the car that police found him in.

“Lynch was not cooperative or willing to comply with the Search Warrant and corrections officers from the City of Las Vegas had to use a restraint chair to force a blood draw,” officers wrote in the police report. The car Lynch was found in was a 2020 Shelby GT500, and it was reportedly missing both a tire and a rim.

Lynch’s attorneys Richard A. Schonfeld and David Z. Chesnoff released a statement regarding the incident.

“Marshawn was not pulled over for a DUI. Rather the vehicle was safely parked and not in operation. We are confident that when all evidence is presented, this will not be a DUI under Nevada law. Marshawn appreciates and is thankful for everyone’s concern and support.”
