Seahawks QB Boykin arrested after Dallas car crash

29 March 2017

According to a Monday morning report from FOX4News in Dallas, Texas, Seattle Seahawks' quarterback Trevone Boykin has been arrested and is now being held on both drug and public intoxication charges.

Dallas Police Department says he was a passenger in a vehicle that ran up on a sidewalk of a club in the Uptown area, injuring five people. Eight people were injured, according to police, including the bartender inside the club. He was not the driver, but he was arrested on charges of marijuana possession and public intoxication.

Officials said a female driver crashed into Sidebar Uptown Dallas, hitting several people.

None of the injuries were life threatening. He was booked into the Dallas County jail early Monday morning.

The companies that will be affected by the sanctions include Raytheon, Daniel Defense, Re/Max and Oshkosh. Tehran has imposed sanctions on 15 USA companies "supporting terrorism", local media reported Sunday.

It marks Boykin's second arrest in less than 15 months. The team suspended him for the game, and he later pleaded no contest to a charge of resisting arrest in June 2016 and received one year of deferred adjudication probation.

Boykin's agent and the Seahawks didn't immediately comment. He was fined $1,500, required to take anger-management and alcohol-awareness courses and given probation for one year. Boykin threw his first career touchdown pass September 25 against San Francisco.

Boykin was previously arrested in 2015 for assaulting a police officer during a bar fight when he was Texas Christian University's starting quarterback.
