Former TCU quarterback Trevone Boykin was arrested on Wednesday afternoon by Mansfield Police, according to NBC DFW. Mansfield police charged Boykin with aggravated assault with serious bodily injury.
NBC DFW reports that Boykin is currently talking to investigators.
The charges stem from an alleged incident on March 20 between Boykin and his girlfriend, Shabrika Bailey. Bailey alleges that Boykin choked her and broke her jaw after she refused to show him text messages, according to WFAA’s Kevin Reece.
The Seattle Seahawks released Boykin on Tuesday morning, following the initial domestic violence report. Mansfield police told NBC DFW that there will be no further details, as the investigation is still active.
Boykin denied the assault in a statement given to NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport. He told Rapoport that he will be “vindicated.”
Bailey and Boykin were previously arrested on March 27, 2017, in Dallas after a traffic incident. Bailey, who was driving the car, hit pedestrians and rammed the vehicled into a night club. Seven people were sent to the hospital with injuries. Boykin was charged with misdemeanor marijuana possession and public intoxication. Bailey was charged with felony intoxication assault with a vehicle – serious bodily injury.
Boykin was a record-setting quarterback at TCU. He threw for 10,727 yards and 86 touchdowns in four seasons. However, Boykin was arrested and suspended for the 2015 Alamo Bowl after getting in a bar fight in a San Antonio nightclub and assaulting a police officer only a few steps from TCU’s team hotel. He pleaded no contest to resisting arrest, and served one year of probation.
