DALLAS - Former TCU quarterback Trevone Boykin was arrested in Dallas after the car he was riding in crashed into a bar.
Records show Boykin, 23, was arrested for public intoxication and possession of marijuana. He was booked into the Dallas County jail early Monday morning.
Dallas PD says eight people were injured just after 2 a.m. when the vehicle struck The Sidebar on Howell Street in the Uptown neighborhood of Dallas. The impact of the crash caused bottles of alcohol and a large cooler to fall on a bartender inside, police said.
Seven people were taken to local hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries.
The driver of the vehicle was identified as 25-year-old Shabrika Bailey. She has been charged with two felony counts of intoxication assault with a vehicle causing serious bodily injury.
Sidebar was apparently hosting a weekly, "guest list only" party Sunday night, according to posts found on social media.
Boykin is currently the backup quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks.
The Seahawks' public relations Twitter account posted a statement Monday afternoon, saying it was aware of Boykin's arrest and that the team was "disappointed" in its backup quarterback.
Seahawks spokesperson: "We are aware of the situation involving Trevone Boykin. We are still gathering information and are disappointed."— Seattle Seahawks (@seahawksPR) March 27, 2017
Boykin appeared in six games for the NFC West Champion Seahawks last season, completing 13 of 18 passes for 145 yards and a touchdown.
He threw for a TCU school record 10,727 yards and 86 touchdowns in his four-year career as a Horned Frog.
Editor’s note: This story first said five people were injured in the crash. That information came from police and was updated to eight later Monday morning.
