Former NFL star running back Marshawn Lynch is currently in Las Vegas City Jail following his arrest this Tuesday. 

Lynch, 36, was pulled over by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department for suspected driver impairment on Tuesday. Police determined during the investigation that Lynch was indeed impaired. 

The former NFL star was arrested, as a result. He was booked into Las Vegas City Jail for driving under the influence. 

"#BREAKING 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. (1/2)," LVMPD wrote.

LVMPD added, "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. (2/2)"

It was announced earlier this week Marshawn Lynch, who no longer plays, is now in a special advisory role with the Seattle Seahawks. 

It's unclear if Lynch's arrest will impact his new position.
