His arrest comes a day after he was announced by the Seattle Seahawks as a special correspondent for his former team to “produce creative content for a variety of projects.”

However, according to a reportage by CNN, the announcement was no longer on the team’s website as of Tuesday afternoon.

Lynch, nicknamed “Beast Mode” for his ferocious, physical running style, played 12 seasons in the NFL, winning Super Bowl XLVIII with the Seahawks in February 2014.

Lynch retired in 2019 after having played with the Seahawks, Raiders and Buffalo Bills.
