Marshawn Lynch mug shot
Another NFL arrest ... this time, the man in the mug shot is Seattle Seahawks starting running back Marshawn Lynch ... who was arrested for DUI in Oakland over the weekend.

According to law enforcement, Lynch was pulled over by the California Highway Patrol on Saturday ... and during the stop, the officer noticed Marshawn seemed a little boozy.

The "Beast Mode" running back was eventually arrested after cops determined his blood alcohol level was above .08, the legal limit in California.

The 26-year-old was booked ... and later posed for an angry mug shot (see above ... if you dare).

Lynch was eventually released on his own recognizance.

IN MY OPINION    

He should be ANGRY at himself and no one else.

*DON'T DRINK AND DRIVE.
*DON'T DRIVE DRUNK.
*TURN YOUR KEYS OVER IF YOU ARE DRUNK.
*GET A DESIGNATED DRIVER IN YOU ARE GOING TO DRINK.
*CALL A FRIEND IF YOU KNOW YOU CAN'T DRIVE.
*DON'T THINK FOR A MINUTE THAT IT WOULDN'T HAPPEN TO YOU.

Be responsible when you are drinking.

He drove drunk in downtown Buffalo and then did a hit and run on a woman from Ontario. He ran away and got off from ALL CHARGES!

If the NFL has no code of conduct, it seriously needs to get one.

The NFL should open a franchise in the U.S. prison system. Most of their players seem to be spending their time there.

Awww, he's not liking The Man a whole lot in this shot. Angry? No, more like liquored up contempt.

Yet another NFL player that we can all be proud of and one that our kids can look up to. This is ridiculous, he should be ashamed of himself for acting like a total idiot. Why can't you be something that kids can look up to instead of a drunken idiot.

TMZ really missed the boat this weekend when Elvis Dumervill of the Denver Broncos Was arrested in Miami for Aggrevated assult with a deadly weapon over a woman who did not drive fast enough for him and his friend. When the cars stop Elvis and his passenger got out of the car lifted up there shirts and pretended to have a gun when the police searched there car they had a 40 Glocc handgun loaded in the car. Elvis and his friend were arrested in front of a Victoria Secret Store in MIami Dade County area Elvis Posted a $7500 bond and was realesed from jail.

These athletes live in an "I can do nothing wrong world." They are spoiled jerks who feel entitled to do only as they wish. This includes gtetting behind the wheel of a car and posing as a risk to all others. This is why they don't pony up the chump change for a cab ride or a limo ride home.

The Elvis Dumervil story is much more ignorant and slightly exciting. I'm surprised TMZ hasn't picked up on it.
