Plaxico BurressMove over Plaxico Burress. There's a new alleged gun-toting NFL sheriff in town.

Buffalo Bills running back Marshawn Lynch -- who just played in the Pro Bowl last week -- was arrested on Wednesday in Culver City, Cal. for allegedly packing some serious heat.

Culver City cops say they found Lynch and two other males sitting in a 2006 Mercedes Benz -- and a "subsequent field investigation led to the discovery of a loaded firearm... The officers determined the gun belonged to Lynch." The type of gun has not been released.
