TCU QB Trevone Boykin Charged with Felony Assault of a Police Officer, Suspended for Valero Alamo Bowl Game
HOW SELFISH AND STUPID COULD ONE POSSIBLY BE …
TCU quarterback Trevone Boykin was arrested and charged with felony assault of a police officer Thursday morning in San Antonio, TX ahead of the Valero Alamo Bowl. Trevone Boykin has been suspended for the bowl game. Boykin was removed from the bar, after fighting with patrons but the fight continued. San Antonio bicycle police officers arrived at the scene and, with the help of bar bouncers, tried to stop the fight.
Future NFL teams may want to look at the stupidity of this player before they waste a draft pick on some one who would do something so selfish and stupid.
TCU quarterback Trevone Boykin was arrested and charged with a felony early Thursday morning in San Antonio after fighting at a bar and then allegedly striking a bicycle patrol officer.
Boykin was formally charged with assaulting a public servant, a third-degree felony, posted a $5,000 bond and was released from custody late Thursday morning.
TCU is playing Oregon on Saturday in the Alamo Bowl. TCU coach Gary Patterson issued a statement, saying: “Trevone Boykin and [junior wide receiver] Preston Miller have been suspended for Saturday’s game due to a violation of team rules. We are disappointed in their actions and apologize to the TCU Horned Frogs Nation, Valero Alamo Bowl and city of San Antonio.”
A TCU spokesperson confirmed Boykin was sent home Thursday following his arrest and suspension.
At a Thursday morning news conference, San Antonio Police chief William McManus confirmed reports that Boykin, 22, and some teammates were in an establishment named Pat O’Brien’s just before 2 a.m. when some patrons recognized the quarterback and began to trash-talk. Boykin became upset, and a scuffle ensued. In the melee, Boykin struck a bar employee.
