Fox4News Former Texas Christian University football star Trevone Boykin was among two people arrested after a car crashed into an Uptown Dallas bar and injured five people. Boykin was a passenger in the car that hit Sidebar Bar around 2 a.m. Monday. Police suspect the woman in the driver’s seat, 26-year-old Shabrika Baley, was drunk when she pulled out of a parking garage and suddenly backed into the front of the building. Four people on the crowded sidewalk were hit by the car and a bartender inside the club was injured as the car pushed through the front wall. Three of them were taken to the hospital with injuries like a broken ankle and a dislocated arm. None have life-threatening injuries. Boykin was the starting quarterback for TCU in 2014 and 2015. He led the Horned Frogs to a No. 3 ranking and Peach Bowl victory during his junior year. But he was arrested for hitting an officer during a bar fight two days before the Alamo Bowl the following year. Boykin served as the backup quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks last season. Police plan to notify the NFL of his arrest. He is still at the Dallas County jail facing drug possession and public intoxication charges. Bailey is expected to face two counts of intoxication assault.
Trevone Boykin, a former star quarterback at TCU who served as the primary backup to Russell Wilson with the Seattle Seahawks last season, was arrested late last night after a car that he was a passenger in crashed into a Dallas bar leaving five people injured. Trevone Boykin was arrested for public intoxication, and when he was searched police found marijuana on him, which led to a drug possession arrest. The good news is, Trevone Boykin was not driving the vehicle, so he will avoid DUI charges as well as charges stemming from the injuries caused to innocent people on the sidewalk. However, for an NFL quarterback who serves as the primary backup to one of the faces of the league, this arrest does not look good. Players in like Trevone Boykin need to make better decisions, and not put themselves in these situations, their career and potentially millions of dollars could be at stake.
