Seahawks backup quarterback Trevone Boykin was arrested this morning in Dallas, after a car crash which injured five people.

According to FOX 4 in Dallas, Boykin was the passenger in a car that backed into a bar, injuring a group of four bystanders who were outside. A bartender was also injured. Three of them were taken to the hospital with injuries including a broken ankle and dislocated arm, but none of the injuries were life threatening.

The woman driving the car was allegedly the drunk one and arrested for suspicion of DWI, but Boykin was arrested on two counts of marijuana possession and public intoxication. He remains in the Dallas County jail at the moment.

Boykin served as Russell Wilson’s backup last year as a rookie, after an ignominious end to his college career at TCU. He was suspended for the Alamo Bowl after he was arrested for hitting a cop.

Despite the fact he wasn’t driving, the arrest sets him up for possible punishment from the league. He appeared in six games last year, throwing 18 passes.

  1. Classless organization starting with the coach, the players, and their newbie fans who were Dallas fans 4 years. No one should be surprised of this.

  2. He was suspended for the Alamo Bowl after he was arrested for hitting a cop.

    Serious question?

    Was he allowed to compete at the NFL Combine or does that only count towards girls? (Of course it could have been a female cop for the double whammy.) Just domestic violence or does that cover any type of battery?

  3. Oh snap. He was allowed to compete in the combine. Screwy policy don’t you think? They need to change that to just battery.

    Um, the 49ers waived Demarcus Dobbs after his trouble, and who picked him up? The Seahawks. Nice try, bruh.

  6. -Billionaire fat cats meeting this week, flying in on their G6, dining on foi gras, prawns and veal, champagne toasts to another year of billions.

    -Players getting stoned, getting in fights, parading around drunk and injuring people (albeit Boykin was a stoned passenger).

    Just another week behind the shield

    Why punish Boykin if he wasn’t driving?

    >>>>>>>

    So you are cool with the fact that he let some obviously drunk girl drive for him? I guess he ran out of fall guys and found his fall girl.

  8. I suppose Boykin deserves whatever punishment the league deems appropriate, but I don’t consider either of the charges to be of a serious nature. Public intoxication? At a bar? I’m sure everyone there could be similarly charged, including the bystanders that were injured by the car. And we all know how silly marijuana laws are.

    Bruce Miller: Cut
    Chris Culliver: let go
    Daniel Kilgore: Did not hurt 5 people, or anyone.
    Al Netter: cut
    Demarcus Dobbs: cut

    Your move Seattle.

    ========================================

    Why post a question in the comments section that’ll take a week to get a reply to when you can just… ya know… read the article?

  11. Public intox? Was he supposed to sit in the car and wait to see if it caught fire? Another case of cops stacking charges so they can drop one on plea deal.

  13. All judgment aside, how do you back up into a bar? This sounds like something out of a Family Guy episode.

    – – – – –

    The NFL changed this rule for the the 2016 Combine. While 2016 was Boykin’s Combine, he hadn’t been convicted or pled guilty to the assault charge BEFORE the combine was held, so he was allowed to participate. (He plead guilty a couple of months later in June 21016)

    So he was allowed to participate.

    ah…49ers…. the epitomy of classless – ownership on down.

  16. Never needed more than the one handle…nice try, but it shows just how warped the average Claranette fan is.

    The Seahawks have their own methods of dealing with these types…Boykin may get cut or they may attempt to rehabilitate him and see how he responds. But the fact remains that the 49ers have had a worse history of abusive players. So all you “um”, and “your move” people can take a good hard look in the mirror.

    OMG, he was drunk and then in public AND had (GASP) marijuana??

    I’m going to go out on a limb here and say, who cares.

    Maybe all the people that were injured in the accident ?

  18. You niners clowns….smh…It doesn’t matter that you cut them. They were on your team at the time of the infraction so that speaks to your locker room culture and your piss poor organization. Think before you type. Sorry your franchise hasn’t been relevant for two decades…..

  19. The real issue here is that he is on probation for his prior offense — he just settled that last summer. All he had to do was not get in trouble. moron.

    Better off letting him go and signing another backup. This guy showed some skills, but you can’t count on him to do anything but screw up.

    He…wasn’t….driving….

  21. So lemme’ get this straight! He is RIDING in a car that happens to get into an accident, and he’s charged with PUBLIC intoxication. Man! If I lived in TEXAS I sure wouldn’t bother having a designated driver because if something happens your gonna get charged anyway!

    Drunk Boykin sitting in the passenger seat and the marijuana he possessed did not make the girl driving the car back into the crowd. Yes, he probably should have used better judgement and not been in that type of situation but neither of his charges caused the accident to happen, so who cares. Sorry about the people injured by the woman trying to drive drunk.

  23. Unrelated to this, but if I read this right – if you get drunk at home, and then whilst being driven to another private residence the driver is pulled over for an infraction, you can get prosecuted for public intoxication?
