Texas Christian University quarterback Trevone Boykin was arrested Thursday morning for assaulting a San Antonio public servant, a third-degree felony.

According to ESPN, Boykin and a group of friends were involved in a fight at the bar Pat O’Brien’s. After the fight spilled outside, Boykin reportedly charged a group of San Antonio PD bicycle officers:

He allegedly was swinging at one officer and then several officers took him to the ground. After officers threatened to use a stun gun on Boykin, he was arrested. In addition to the charge of assaulting a police officer, he had also faced charges of resisting arrest and public intoxication.

A senior, Boykin passed for 3,575 yards and 31 touchdowns. He was expected to be a top pick in the upcoming NFL draft.

Horned Frogs head coach Gary Patterson issued the following statement after Boykin’s arrest.

Trevone Boykin and junior wide receiver Preston Miller have been suspended for Saturday’s game due to a violation of team rules. We are disappointed in their actions and apologize to the TCU Horned Frogs Nation, Valero Alamo Bowl and city of San Antonio.

TCU will play Oregon in the Alamo Bowl on Saturday.
