Arrest Video Shows Police Forcibly Removing Marshawn Lynch From Vehicle

The former star running back was arrested earlier this week.

Police camera footage of Marshawn Lynch’s recent DUI arrest shows officers dragging the former star NFL running back out of his vehicle.

TMZ obtained footage of the arrest, reportedly showing Lynch refusing to cooperate with police until one officer grabs him by the hood of his sweatshirt and drags him to the ground. The officer then places a knee on Lynch’s back while arresting him.

"No more games today," the officer can be heard saying as he was taking Lynch to the ground.

Also in the video, the arresting officer says he smelled alcohol on Lynch's breath. During the period during which Lynch refused to exit his vehicle, officers did not indicate he was being investigated for DUI.

"Marshawn was not pulled over for a DUI. Rather the vehicle was safely parked and not in operation," Lynch's attorneys said in a statement about the Tuesday (August 9) arrest, according to TMZ. "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."

According to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, responding officers stopped the 36-year-old at Fairfield Avenue and West Utah Avenue, just north of the Las Vegas Strip, concluding he was impaired.
