Former Berkeley star running back Marshawn Lynch was arrested Saturday morning for driving under the influence.  According to the California Highway Patrol, Mr. Lynch was driving erratically on Interstate 80 in Berkeley, Alameda County.  Mr. Lynch cooperated with the officer, and submitted to a preliminary alcohol screening (PAS) test, as well as a post arrest breath test.  Alameda County prosecutors have not yet made a filing decision based on police reports from the CHP. 

 

While it is difficult to make judgements with limited information, I would say that it is usually not a good idea to submit to a PAS test.  Few officers tell people that this test is completely voluntary, unless you are a juvenile or on probation for DUI.  Unless you are positive you will come in under .08%, submitting to the PAS usually provides additional evidence to the prosecution that you don't need to provide.
