Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch was seen weaving from lane to lane on Interstate 880 in Oakland, Calif., on Saturday morning, leading to his arrest for investigation of DUI.
    
An incident report released by the California Highway Patrol on Tuesday described Lynch driving a Ford Econoline van and having two near collisions with two other vehicles driving in adjacent lanes.
    
Authorities say Lynch was pulled over around 3:20 a.m. PDT Saturday and showed signs of intoxication. After multiple field sobriety tests, Lynch was arrested and booked into jail, where he was cited and later released. Lynch took a chemical test.
    
Teresa Drenick, director of communications for the Alameda County district attorney's office, said Lynch was scheduled for an Aug. 14 preliminary court appearance and that any decision on charging Lynch will be made by then.

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - The California Highway Patrol says Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch was arrested in the Oakland area for investigation of DUI.

Officer Peter van Eckhardt said late Monday that the 26-year-old Lynch was arrested early Saturday in the city of Emeryville.

Lynch was taken to the Santa Rita Jail, where he was cited and later released. Van Eckhardt says Lynch took a chemical test but it wasn't clear whether that was a blood or breath test.

Van Eckhardt says the test results will be forwarded with the rest of the arrest information to the Alameda County district attorney's office. He says he has no details of the arrest.

The Seahawks said a statement Monday that the team is "aware of the situation with Marshawn and still gathering information."
