Seahawks Release Third-Year Quarterback Trevone Boykin After Claim of Assault

The Seahawks released third-year quarterback Trevone Boykin on Tuesday after a Dallas TV station reported he is being investigated for assaulting his girlfriend following an incident last week in Mansfield, Texas, Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times reports.

The report from WFAA-TV in Dallas detailed an alleged assault last week that left Boykin’s girlfriend, Shabrika Bailey, with her jaw broken on both sides. The TV station reported that police in Mansfield, Texas, were investigating the allegations.

Boykin is expected to be charged with aggravated assault, a felony, TMZ reported.

In an interview with WFAA, Bailey said she had a constricted airway and trouble breathing due to injuries suffered in the incident and was airlifted to Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas for treatment. She was released from the hospital Saturday, three days later, according to the report.

It is the third time Boykin has been arrested or investigated since December 2015, and the second time during his Seahawks career.
