Responding officers stopped Lynch at Fairfield Avenue and West Utah Avenue, just north of the famed Las Vegas Strip, and concluded Lynch was impaired, the department said. He was arrested, taken to the Las Vegas city jail and booked, according to the police.
On Monday, the Seattle Seahawks announced Lynch was hired as a special correspondent for his former team to “produce creative content for a variety of projects.” The announcement was no longer on the team’s website as of Tuesday afternoon.
Lynch, nicknamed “Beast Mode” for his ferocious, physical running style, played 12 seasons in the NFL, winning Super Bowl XLVIII with the Seahawks in February 2014. Lynch retired in 2019 after having played with the Seahawks, Raiders and Buffalo Bills.
