Seahawks rookie QB facing one assault charge from bowl game incident

Seahawks rookie quarterback Trevone Boykin faces one count of misdemeanor assault for his role in a Dec. 31 fight in San Antonio that resulted in Boykin being sent home before his final college game, TMZ reported Tuesday.

Boykin was initially charged with a felony count of assualting a public servant, public intoxication and resisting arrest. Court documents say Boykin struck an officer trying to take him into custody after he was removed by staff members from a bar. He didn’t play in the Alamo Bowl for TCU after the charges.

The report said Boykin faces up to a year in a jail on the assault charge he’s facing and is due to be arraigned in August.

Boykin signed with the Seahawks after the draft. The Seahawks went through the spring with only Boykin and Jake Heaps in their quarterback room behind Tarvaris Jackson, and with Jackson still unsigned and now facing gun charges after an incident last weekend, Boykin could end up being the team’s No. 2 quarterback.

  1. Yawn. When they don’t have enough for a felony conviction they kick it to the city for misdemeanor charges. Then the city offers probation and a fine. It’s how they milk you for $$$

  2. That is a pretty worrisome combination–a weak and inexperienced offensive line protecting a quarterback without much in the way of a backup. That line better come together very quickly.

    Jake Heaps, I hope you can be really, really good if called upon. And welcome back, Vernon Adams.

  3. Niners fans trolling a Seahawks article over an undrafted agent?
    Peds? Wow that’s the best ya got?

    Your fan base deserves Chip, Baalke,and York.

    Blaine is your qb,and with Davis not returning, Boone and impatient gone it’s likely SF could have a worse offensive line.

    Enjoy the basement

  4. A culture of domestic violence permeates the Seagulls locker room. Just ask Frank Clark, Tavaris, and Boykin.

  5. Great upgrade, go from a back up that was just arrested for pulling a gun on his wife and threatening to kill her to another who is facing a year in jail for assaulting a police officer. What’s the matter, Ray Lewis isn’t available to play?

    Guess we all missed the part where the cop was Boykin’s girlfriend. It certainly explains the charges getting watered down. Thanks for clearing that up. And to think if I hadn’t been slumming here just to see how weak the troll comments were I’d have missed it.

    Says the jests fan. Is that the real reason you hide behind a Pats-centric userid? Because no one takes a Jests troll seriously?

  10. Did I miss something? I thought the Seahawks had eliminated the backup quarterback job, due to the wonders of Recovery Water.

    Assult the police and still give him a job??… Good jon Seattle!!

    Two suggestions: try spellcheck (assault is not spelled, “assult”), and proofreading (“job” I think is what you were looking for, ” good job, Seattle”, and not, “good jon, Seattle”) would help.

    Then again, Tomlin wasting another year of Rothlisberger is more problematic for you guys.

    Funny, the “drugs” you speak of are perfectly legal in your state. Don’t even get me started on Marshawn Lynch’s idiotic DUI going down the 101 in a minivan at 85 mph and doing a last second five lane change so he can hit his baby mama’s exit. But while Marshawn was being an idiot, at least he wasn’t a filthy wife beater like his teammates. Not sure why the Seagulls welcome domestic violence, perhaps it’s because they’re a second place, second class organization. You know, kinda like their 2015 season.

  15. You must secretly be a fan of the Seahawks to keep track of all those details.

    The team has nothing to do with what laws the state does or does not observe, but you don’t hear about their players getting tagged as much as the Cards. Maybe if you studied your own players as intensely as you do the Seahawks, you’d know that.
