Former quarterback Boykin charged with aggravated assault, released on bond
Footage from Trevone Boykin’s security video system captured him assaulting his girlfriend, according to a statement from Mansfield police.
The former Horned Frog and Seattle Seahawks quarterback was arrested at his Mansfield home Wednesday on a charge of aggravated assault with serious bodily injury, a second-degree felony punishable by 2-20 years in prison.
“Basically [detectives] were able to confirm the assault occurred after reviewing the video,” Mansfield police Sgt. William Yale said.
The police obtained the surveillance video from Boykin’s house after executing a search warrant March 22. Officers were called to Parkland Hospital in Dallas March 21 in response to an alleged assault that happened at Boykin’s home in Mansfield.
Late Thursday night he was released on a bond of $25,000 from Tarrant County Jail.
The woman involved, Shabrika Bailey, provided a statement to police about the alleged assault.
Allegations went public after a Bailey interview with WFAA-TV was posted March 27 where she alleged he broke her jaw.
Boykin has denied the allegations and his agent Drew Pittman told WFAA the allegations are false.
The Seattle Seahawks cut Boykin Tuesday after the allegations surfaced.

Boykin went unclaimed on waivers after the Seahawks cut him Tuesday.
The assault allegation isn’t the first off-field issue for Boykin, who had spent his entire NFL career with Seattle and set numerous offensive records as a Horned Frog.
He was arrested in Dallas last year when a vehicle he was a passenger in hit multiple people on the sidewalk. He fled the scene on foot but was later arrested on misdemeanor charges of public intoxication and possession of marijuana. Those charges were later dropped.
In 2015, Boykin was arrested for assaulting a police officer and public intoxication shortly before the Alamo Bowl in San Antonio during his senior year at TCU.
TCU Football had no comment about Boykin’s potential attendance at Pro Day Friday. He attended the event last year.
