Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch was arrested Saturday on suspicion of driving under the influence, the San Jose Mercury News' Daniel M. Jimenez reported Monday night. He was taken to the Santa Rita Jail, according to the report. From the report:

Lynch, 26, who plays for the Seattle Seahawks, was arrested by the California Highway Patrol in Oakland, according to Alameda County Sheriff's spokesman Sgt. Raymond Kelly. He was taken to Santa Rita Jail, where he was cited and released.

Additional details on the circumstances of the arrest weren't immediately available.

Lynch was in Oakland last week to award a scholarship to recent high school graduate through his Fam 1st Family Foundation.

This is not Lynch's first brush with the law during his time in the NFL. In 2008 while with the Buffalo Bills, Lynch had his license revoked after he said he didn't realize he had hit a woman with his car while driving in downtown Buffalo's bar district at 3:30 a.m. In 2009, Lynch was arrested in Culver City, Calif., on felony charges for possession of a concealed weapon. He pleaded guilty and was suspended three games.

Lynch put up the best numbers of his six-year career with the Seahawks last season. He carried the ball 285 times for 1,204 yards (a 4.2 yards-per-carry average) and had 12 rushing touchdowns. He added one touchdown reception.
