Texas Christian University quarterback Trevone Boykin was arrested early this morning in San Antonio, Texas following a bar fight. He has been charged with assaulting a police officer, resisting arrest, and public intoxication, according to ESPN.
Before 2 am central time, he is alleged to have been in an altercation at Pat O’Brien’s, a bar. A group of patrons, who were also at the bar, recognized him and began talking trash to him.
Boykin did not like what they were saying. The 22-year-old was with a group of teammates when this incident happened.
The two sides were removed from the bar when a scuffle reportedly took place. He’s accused of striking a bar employee, then the fight continued outside.
Once the San Antonio police arrived at the scene, they tried to break up the fight. At this time, Boykin reportedly threw a punch, which is being called “indiscriminate,” that hit one of the officers.
He was arrested after the officers threatened to use a stun gun on him.
The TCU Horned Frogs Athletic Department has released a statement about the situation:
“We are aware of a situation last night and are gathering information. We will continue to closely monitor this and evaluate additional details as they become available.”
This season, the one-time Heisman candidate, threw for 3,575 yards with 31 touchdowns. He also had 10 interceptions.
The team has not announced whether Boykin will be suspended for the team’s Alamo Bowl on Saturday against the Oregon Ducks. One has to believe he’ll miss this game if the incident is true.
