TCU QB arrested for striking police officer after bar fight
They say nothing good happens after midnight.
That is especially true for college football players on bowl trips with their teams.
According to a report from NBC 5, TCU’s star quarterback may be in a world of trouble after what he did early Thursday morning.
Trevone Boykin was arrested in San Antonio overnight on charges of assaulting a police officer, resisting arrest and public intoxication.
It apparently stems from a bar fight that resulted in Boykin being thrown out of the establishment after striking a bar employee, and the Horned Frogs QB took his anger onto the street when police officers arrived to diffuse the situation.
That’s where things could get ugly for Boykin, according to the report:
San Antonio bicycle patrol officers arrived shortly after and, along with bar bouncers, tried to break up the fight. Police said Boykin was being held back by his friends, who told officers they would take Boykin back to their hotel.
Police said Boykin then began trying to punch officers that arrived to assist. Several officers took Boykin to the ground where the fight continued until they threatened to use a stun gun on him.
TCU is set to take on Oregon in the Alamo Bowl on Saturday, and while there has yet to be a statement from Horned Frogs coach Gary Patterson, you’d have to expect that Boykin may not be with the team for that.
