On Tuesday afternoon, Las Vegas police announced they arrested former NFL star running back Marshawn Lynch.

According to a statement from police, they conducted a vehicle stop for suspected driver impairment. The statement said officers determined Lynch was impaired and then arrested the former NFL star.

"The LVMPD conducted a vehicle stop at Fairfield Avenue and West Utah Avenue (near Wyoming and Las Vegas Blvd) on a driver, later identified as Marshawn Lynch, for suspected driver impairment," a statement from the police said.

"Through the course of the investigation, officers determined that Lynch was impaired and conducted an arrest. Lynch was transported to the Las Vegas City Jail and booked for driving under the influence," the statement continued.
