Seattle Seahawks quarterback Trevone Boykin was arrested early Monday in Dallas on misdemeanor charges of marijuana possession and public intoxication after a car in which he was a passenger struck pedestrians and then a night club, injuring eight people — and sending seven to local hospitals.
According to police, at 2:10 a.m. local time, Shabrika Bailey, 25, backed up at a high rate of speed, striking pedestrians on a sidewalk and then a wall of Sidebar in Dallas. The impact of the car with the building caused bottles of alcohol and an ice cooler to fall inside Sidebar, hitting and injuring the bartender.
None of the injuries were considered life-threatening, according to police.
Bailey was charged with two counts of intoxication assault with a vehicle — serious bodily Injury, a felony 3 charge.
Boykin, 23, was being held on $500 bond at the Dallas County Jail. He is currently on probation stemming from an incident in 2015, when he was TCU’s starting quarterback.
He was suspended for the Alamo Bowl after a Dec. 31, 2015, incident at a bar.
He pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of resisting arrest in June and paid a $1,500 fine, plus $237 in court costs, and was placed on one year probation. He was also ordered to take alcohol awareness and anger management courses and serve 80 hours of community service.
Boykin went undrafted last year and signed with the Seahawks as a free agent.
“We are aware of the situation involving Trevone Boykin. We are still gathering information and are disappointed,” the Seahawks said in a statement.
