Star TCU QB Boykin Out of Jail Following Arrest and Out of the Alamo Bowl
SAN ANTONIO (AP) — T
TCU quarterback Trevone Boykin has been released on bond from a San Antonio jail after being arrested on charges of striking a police officer outside a bar during an early-morning altercation.
Boykin left the Bexar County jail on Thursday with a coat over his head before ducking into a car. He did not answer questions from reporters.
The one-time Heisman Trophy contender is charged with felony assault of a police officer. San Antonio Police Chief William McManus says he doesn't know whether Boykin was swinging at police or someone else outside a bar shortly before 2 a.m. near the city's famous River Walk.
McManus says Boykin had been heckled at the bar before police arrived.
Following the arrest, TCU coach Gary Patterson suspended his star quarterback for Saturday's Alamo Bowl against Oregon.
