Texas Christian University quarterback and Earl Campbell Award finalist Trevone Boykin was arrested in San Antonio Wednesday night.
Boykin was jailed after a bar fight at Pat O’Brien’s. The fight reportedly began when some bar guests recognized Boykin and “exchanged words”, reports WOAI. That’s when Boykin allegedly became angry and began trying to hit the patrons. Boykin, along with others, were removed from the bar.
NBC5 reports San Antonio police arrived by bicycle shortly after and attempted to break up the fight, along with bouncers from the establishment. That’s when police say Boykin’s friends held him back and told officials they’d escort him back to the hotel.
Police then say Boykin tried to punch officers who arrived at the scene. Boykin was then taken to the ground and police threatened to use a stun gun on him.
One bicycle officer was treated at the scene for cuts on his knees and a swollen face, which he got during the scuffle.
TCU officials released the following statement to NBC5 regarding the incident:
San Antonio Police Chief William McManus met with the media Thursday morning to discuss the events that took place.
Boykin was booked into the Bexar County Jail on $5,000 bond.
