Marshawn Lynch is set to appear in court in the next coming days.

The court appearance for the former NFL running back stems from a DUI charge he got last year when Las Vegas police found him sleeping in his car that was missing its wheel.

According to TMZ Sports, police said Lynch told them he had stolen the car he was driving: “During the stop, cops say Lynch ‘stated that he was not drinking and he does not do drugs, but that he stole the vehicle.’”

One tire had been torn off and the front tire on the passenger side was “almost off.”

Video of the incident showed cops physically restraining him in order to execute a search warrant to obtain a blood sample after Lynch refused a Breathalyzer.

His court date is next Wednesday, Nov. 8th.

Per, prosecutors think Lynch had a blood alcohol level that was twice the legal limit. Right now, he faces a DUI charge, along with driving a vehicle that was unregistered, and not driving in a travel lane. He has pleaded not guilty.

Lynch played seven years for the Seahawks and was a member of their Super Bowl-winning squad in 2013.

Overall, he played in the NFL for 13 seasons before he retired in 2019.
