Seahawks quarterback Trevone Boykin is under investigation, after a woman in Texas accused him of domestic violence.

According to a report from WFAA, his girlfriend told police an incident that began with an argument over a text message led to an incident, in which she suffered a broken jaw.

“So he goes into a choke. I remember him choking me and I’m trying to calm him down. And I just couldn’t. And I blacked out. I just couldn’t calm him down at all,” Shabrika Bailey said. “The pressure was just hard. The pressure got hard to where I just remember just collapsing completely. And I just woke up in a puddle of blood on the kitchen floor. My whole right side was full of blood on the kitchen floor.”

Bailey spoke to the television station despite her jaw being wired shut. She said Boykin dragged her to the bathroom to try to clean her up after the incident, and that he later drove her to the hospital. But when hospital staff questioned her, he left the hospital and didn’t return.

“His first suggestion was to say that I fell. Then he suggested that I got beat up by a girl, or jumped. Then he suggested that I fell again,” she said. “He’s saying basically since we’ve already been in a case we don’t need nothing else. And of course his football career is on the line. That’s his main goal, just ‘my football career is on the line.”

Because her jaw was broken on both sides and she was having difficulty breathing, she was airlifted to another hospital, where she remained for three days.

The Mansfield Police Department interviewed Bailey Tuesday and confirmed Boykin was under investigation. Bailey’s the same woman who was with Boykin when the car they were in backed into a nightclub. She said that happened because they were fighting in the car. He was charged with possession of marijuana and public intoxication, but those charges against him were dropped last month.

  1. This guy is a horrible human. All the trouble this guy has been in is not worth a roster spot or headache. Seattle needs to grow a pair and cut this guy.

  2. Cut this idiot immediately. He keeps getting arrested, he doesn’t learn the plays, he is pretty much the definition of a terrible team mate.

    I am all for due process in any legal case, but I hope if he is guilty this isn’t swept under the rug like so many other cases involving athletes.

  3. Not a good look at all for the NFL.

    Bloodied, jaw broken on both sides. Wonder how many games thats worth. With Goodell nothing would surprise me.

  4. So I saw the headline and the first thing that goes through my head is “someone gets shoved out of the way and here we go calling it assault.”But I keep reading. Wow. I really don’t know what to say. I don’t care how mad you are… I don’t care how how “hood” you are. I don’t care if “she started it.” You don’t put your hands on a woman. Period.

  5. Those are double felonies. That’s jail. In NY a choke in a DV case is a front and center issue right now and a broken jaw (assault 2, with a punch; assault 1 with an instrument) is an automatic arrest and order of protection.

    The choke hold is a new classification and at a minimum it’s assault 2. If she blacked out, you can make a case for attempted murder and let the District Attorney sort it out.

    BTW, homicide and the attempt of, are the same charge. Difference is, you check off a box on the left under the column heading (Attempt). It’s sentencing that is different, obviously.

    He’s done.

  6. Another of the Goon squad in Seattle. If its not the mouth that roared Richard Sherman, Bennett knocking over an elderly security at the Stuper Bowl, and now the beater Boykin.
    WOW what a group.

  7. This guy is so dumb, he’s shown some flashes of being a darn good QB in the preseason and the times he’s stepped in for Russell Wilson. Good riddance, I hope they send him directly to jail. As much as due process is important this his second arrest I believe? I also have a hard time believing a female would break her own jaw.

  8. Well the Seahawks did need a new Walter Payton Man of the Year candidate. This all but confirms Boykin will carry the torch that Michael Bennett once held, as he bull rushed the corpse of Stephen Hawking. Great dynasty you got their Xeattle.

  9. Seahawks just released him. So long, sorry you ruined a golden opportunity hundreds of thousands of people would have capitalized on instead of beating up women, sicko.

    NFL didn’t do this; Boykin did. How the NFL responds to it can either be a good look or a bad look, but I suspect given recent punishment history it will be tough. I also suspect SEA will cut this idiot rather quickly as the facts come out.

    And DV is bad no matter the eventual injuries. It should be treated harshly and equally in all cases.

  11. Reminds me of a guy once on cops yelling to a female cop ‘I’m goin hit you like I hit her!’
    Piece of gutter-trash.

    Dont which is worse, his actions or she’ll take him back because of the money.

  12. I’m usually one for giving a guy the benefit of the doubt in DV cases but its rarely very black and white as to what happened and both parties share blame for what if anything really happened. Here? Finding it difficult to give Boykin the benefit of the doubt for anything here. I can’t picture anybody doing something to deserve having their jaw broken like that.

  13. Isn’t something like this what we have all come to expect from those who play in the NFL – – – the National Felons League?

  14. No wonder they all hate Russell Wilson. He’s the only one on that roster without a rap sheet.

  15. I will just never understand the thought process of hitting a woman unless you are under life threatening circumstances such as a knife or gun being pointed at you. Hitting a woman should never make a man proud or tough. You should be completely ashamed and embarrassed. You see the videos of Ray Rice and Danry Vasquez and wonder what they were thinking. And to be honest it enrages me. I just don’t understand it. I am not a Jay Z fan but I remember the elevator video where the female was hitting, kicking, and spitting on him. He could have easily knocked her out but instead he tried to get her off of him and did nothing. Props to him.

  16. BTW: I would charge him with attempted murder (I have in the past, under similar circumstances, before people finally figured out that a man who chokes a women is 50% more likely to kill her the next time, or whatever the stats are). I wouldn’t even consider consulting a supervisor. I would have just stayed ‘on the clock’ until I found him. If OT was denied then so be it (it never was), I could and still can sleep at night.

    Being a detective SUCKED, you just end up piecing together serious messes and then some scumbag attorney makes you the bad guy for whatever small detail was missed or reported wrong. Being abused on the stand was no big deal though, made me laugh because most defence attorneys aren’t nearly as smart as they think they are. Every single one creates their own trap. You just have to wait for it. It’s called ‘humaninizing’. Once they ‘get you out of uniform’ and ask you a personal question, they just made you human and you run with it by being extremely passionate. They ALL make that mistake. It’s up to the cop to shove it down their throat.And shove it down their throat I did. I believe in due process and the American way, I also know 99.99% of those arrested are guilty and then they get all dressed up for court, with a new suit and haircut with their family crying in the background. This after mashing a person or 4 to death. Fk them.

    I loved Patrol. Fixing a mess was so much better than piecing it together (after it was too late to fix) for prosecution.

  17. That’s Seattle for you, keep the DV guys on the roster at all costs. Frank Clark needs to have a few guys he can relate to on the roster.

  18. It takes some serious pummeling to break someone’s jaw on both sides….give this guy a ticket to jail.

    You don’t put your hands on a woman. Period.
    ———————————
    Disagree 100%. You don’t put your hands on ANYONE out of anger to hurt them. To say you never touch a woman presumes no woman would ever attack you, which I have seen firsthand is patently untrue.

  20. “That’s his main goal, just ‘my football career is on the line.”

    Hmmmm, maybe he should have thought about that earlier.

  21. That was a career changing move, Trevone. I’m sure you saved your money and didn’t spend it on cars and bling, right? Right?

  22. He is headed to the big house for some serious time. His NFL career is over. He should be top prospect in the PFL (Prison Football League).

    The article indicates he will be charged with serious crimes, perhaps attempted murder. The combination of legal expenses and a civil verdict will wipe him out financially.
