Seahawks QB Trevone Boykin arrested after car crashes into Dallas bar

Arrested March 27 in Dallas while still on probation from a 2015 incident, the backup QB was taken into custody, posted bond and released.

Trevone Boykin was arrested and charged with marijuana possession and public intoxication after a car in which he was riding crashed into a Dallas bar early Monday morning.

The Seahawks quarterback and former TCU star was booked into Dallas County Jail at 4:43 a.m., according to online records.

KDFW in Dallas reported that a car driven by a woman ran onto a sidewalk before crashing into Sidebar around 2 a.m. Monday. The woman, who was not immediately identified, was charged with driving under the influence.

Five people reportedly were injured in the incident — four who were hit by the car as it crossed the sidewalk and a bartender hurt when the vehicle hit the building. None of the injuries are reported to be life-threatening.

Boykin, 23, saw limited action backing up Russell Wilson with the Seahawks as a rookie last season after signing as an undrafted free agent.

"We are aware of the situation involving Trevone Boykin," the team said in a statement released Monday. "We are still gathering information and are disappointed."

Boykin was suspended for what was to be the final game of his career at TCU, the 2016 Alamo Bowl, after being arrested on Dec. 31, 2015 following a bar fight in San Antonio. Police said at the time that Boykin hit a bar employee, then punched a bicycle patrol officer in the face outside the bar as police tried to break up the incident.
