2:08 p.m. PT – Another police video of the arrest shows Lynch telling an officer at the scene that he stole the car, although he laughed as he said it.
Lynch also appeared to nod in and out of sleep as he was asked questions.
Marshawn Lynch was dragged from his car by the hood of his sweatshirt and forcibly thrown to the ground when arrested for impaired driving earlier this week… new police video shows.
In the footage, which was captured shortly after cops began questioning the former NFL star on August 9 in Las Vegas, you can see Lynch leaning back in the driver’s seat of a 2020 Shelby GT500 – appearing to be uncooperative with cops asking him to get off the ride.

Officers can be heard in the video repeatedly asking Lynch to get out of the car – but Lynch continually refused, repeatedly asking why he had to leave the vehicle.
After officers told him he was “obstructing an investigation”, one of the cops walked in and grabbed him by the orange sweatshirt he was wearing.
The cop then threw the ex-Seattle Seahawks to the ground … and told him, “Turn around. Hands behind your back. No more games today.”
Officers can then be heard on the video saying he it smelled of alcohol.
In police documents, obtained by TMZ Sports, cops say when they brought Lynch back to the station he was uncooperative there – and said they ‘had to use a restraint chair’ to draw blood from him after obtaining a search warrant.
Lynch was finally booked on multiple charges, including DUI. He is due in court for a hearing on the matter in December.
Lawyers for the 36-year-old man, Richard A. Schonfeld and David Z. Chesnoffreleased a statement about it on Thursday afternoon… saying: “Marshawn was not arrested for a DUI. Rather, the vehicle was safely parked and not in operation. We are confident that when all evidence is submitted, it will not be a DUI under Nevada law Marshawn appreciates and is grateful for everyone’s interest and support.
