Here’s more from TMZ:
Witnesses tell us they saw Lynch parked at the scene around 5:45 AM — roughly two hours before his arrest — and claim at one point, the running back exited his car to sit on the curb with the driver-side door wide open.
We’re told Lynch remained at the scene until cops arrived … who ultimately determined he was impaired and arrested him for driving under the influence.
We’re told Lynch left a trail of damage on the road until his car reached its resting point … with visible marks on the pavement and curbs.
Additionally, Lynch’s car appeared undrivable by the time cops arrived and busted him for DUI on Tuesday … with one tire completely missing, and at least one other flattened.
TMZ Sports has obtained pictures of the 2020 Shelby GT500 cops believe Lynch was driving prior to his arrest … showing the front-left wheel’s rim resting on the pavement, with no tire in sight.
Lynch is facing multiple charges, including DUI, failing or refusing to surrender proof of security, unregistered vehicle, and failure to drive in the travel lane, USA Today reports, citing jail records.
Following his arrest, Lynch was held in custody at Las Vegas City Jail with a pending bail of $3,381.
His arrest comes amid reports that Lynch is joining the 2022 Seahawks broadcast team as a special correspondent, CBS Sports reports.
Lynch’s court date has been set for December.
