Former Pro Bowl running back Marshawn Lynch was arrested Tuesday morning in Las Vegas on DUI charges, 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,” Las Vegas PD said in a tweet.

Lynch’s bail was set at $3,381, according to USA Today. He was also cited for driving an unregistered vehicle, failure to refuse/surrender and failure to drive in a travel lane, per USA Today.

TMZ obtained a mugshot of Lynch, his eyes barely open.

Lynch, 36, finished his NFL career as a five-time Pro Bowler, with 10,413 rushing yards and 85 touchdowns. He had another 2,214 receiving yards and nine TDs.

He was selected No. 12 overall by Buffalo in the 2007 draft. He played parts of four seasons with the Bills (2007-10), seven seasons with the Seattle Seahawks (2010-15, 2019) and two with the then-Oakland Raiders (2017-18).

Lynch was also arrested on DUI charges in 2012 in Oakland. He pleaded down to a lesser charge of reckless driving.
