Seahawks QB Boykin pleads no contest to resisting arrest, will serve one year of probation
SAN ANTONIO, Texas — Seahawks backup quarterback Trevone Boykin on Thursday pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor charge stemming from a bar incident on Dec. 31 and will avoid jail time under the plea deal, according to media reports.
Boykin, 22, then the quarterback of TCI, was originally charged with assault of a police officer, a felony, outside of a bar in San Antonio. His arrest kept him out of the Alamo Bowl. But, as part of a deal with prosecutors, he was allowed to plead no contest to a misdemeanor charge of resisting arrest.
NFL.com said that, as part of his plea agreement, Boykin was sentenced to a year of probation and must attend alcohol awareness and anger management classes as part of the terms of his probation. In addition, he was ordered to pay a $1,500 fine, submit an apology letter to the arresting officer and complete 80 hours of community service, which he can do in Seattle.
Boykin, who was signed earlier this year as an undrafted free agent, said he plans to be in Seattle when the Seahawks open training camp on July 30.
Other than starter Russell Wilson, Boykin and Jake Heaps are the only quarterbacks currently on the Seahawks roster.
