Boykin, 23, and Shabrika Bailey, 25, were leaving the area at about 2:10 a.m. when she accelerated in reverse and struck seven people on the sidewalk before crashing into Sidebar Uptown Dallas, a bar in the 2600 block of Howell Street, police said.
The impact of the crash knocked bottles of alcohol and a large ice cooler onto the bartender inside the club, according to police.
Seven people were transported to hospitals for injuries that were not life threatening.
Police said Bailey was arrested for two counts of intoxication assault with a vehicle.
Boykin, now a backup quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks, was booked into the Lew Sterrett Jail just before 3 a.m. Monday for public intoxication and marijuana possession, according to authorities.
The latest news from around North Texas.
In video released by the sheriff's office he is seen swaying and repeatedly bowing his head before backing up and almost falling over. About an hour later, inside what Dallas police call the "Shakedown Desk," he was still appearing to struggle to maintain his balance.
In June 2016 the former TCU quarterback plead no contest to resisting arrest over an incident that led to his suspension for his final college game at the Alamo Bowl. Boykin originally faced a felony charge of assaulting a police officer during an incident at a bar two days before the Horned Frogs beat Oregon in the Alamo Bowl on Jan. 2, 2016. Boykin, last summer, agreed to a one-year probation in the case and had the felony charge dismissed.
NBC 5 reached out to Bailey's mother who had no comment. Boykin declined a request for an interview in jail.
Boykin's agent didn't immediately comment Monday. The Seahawks said, "We are aware of the situation involving Trevone Boykin. We are still gathering information and are disappointed."
