According to Dallas County Jail records obtained by the Dallas Star-Telegram, Boykin faces charges that are all misdemeanors, and bond has not yet been set.

He also was charged for public intoxication and resisting arrest. Boykin pleaded no contest, and received a year of probation. Also, he was ordered to attend alcohol awareness sessions and anger management classes. He was fined $1,500, plus $237 in court costs, and ordered to undergo 80 hours of community service. 

As for this latest incident, the car struck four people on the sidewalk outside the bar and the bartender inside the bar was hit after the car crashed into the bar area. Three people were hospitalized, but none are believed to have life-threatening injuries.

Trevone Boykin was an undrafted free agent in 2016, he then signed with the Seattle Seahawks on a three-year, $1.635 million contract to be Russell Wilson’s backup. He had a great season, but he had some off-field issues late in his senior season.
