Seahawks star running back Marshawn Lynch has now officially been charged with driving under the influence, following his arrest over the weekend in his hometown of Oakland, Calif. His lawyer says he will plead not guilty at his arraignment next month.

KPLU sports commentator Art Thiel shares his thoughts on the issue tomorrow morning at 5:35 and 7:35 on 88.5 KPLU. Check back here for a blog of our conversation.
