Seattle Seahawks Release Former TCU QB Trevone Boykin Following Assault Investigation

Former Texas Christian University quarterback Trevone Boykin has been released from the Seattle Seahawks as Mansfield police investigate an aggravated assault case involving Boykin.

Mansfield police said Tuesday there is an active investigation for Aggravated Assault with Serious Bodily Injury - Family Violence involving Boykin and Shabrika Bailey.

The Seattle Seahawks tweeted that Boykin had been released Tuesday.

Boykin released a statement to NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport that reads:

"I understand the Seahawks decision to release me. The story that was reported casts a bad light on the organization and on me. I want to be clear that the story is false. The police have taken statements from the accuser, another witness and me. All of these statements confirm that I was not involved in the physical altercation. This woman has lied about me and it has cost me my jog. I know guilt by association is real. This person has fabricated a story and I am suffering the consequences. I will let the legal system run its course and I know I will be vindicated."

Mansfield police offered no other details citing an active investigation.

This isn't the first time Boykin and Bailey's names have been in the news. In March 2017, Boykin and Bailey were arrested after a car crashed into a Dallas bar, injuring eight people.

Bailey was driving when police say she accelerated in reverse, hitting people on a sidewalk before crashing into the Sidebar Uptown Dallas. She was arrested on two counts of intoxication assault with a vehicle. Boykin was arrested for public intoxication and marijuana possession.

In June 2016 the former TCU quarterback pleaded 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 agreed to a one-year probation in the case and had the felony charge dismissed.
