Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch has been charged with driving under the influence by the Alameda County district attorney's office.

Teresa Drenick, director of communications for the Alameda County DA, said in an email Wednesday morning that the decision was made to charge the Seahawks' star running back. Lynch has a court date on Aug. 14.

Lynch was seen weaving on Interstate 880 in the Oakland, Calif., area on Saturday morning, leading to his arrest for investigation of DUI. An incident report released by the California Highway Patrol 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 in Emeryville and showed signs of intoxication.
