Trevone Boykin Posts Long Apology On Twitter After Arrest

Trevone Boykin, the former West Mesquite High School standout and star quarterback at TCU, issued a public apology on Thursday evening following his overnight arrest in San Antonio and subsequent suspension from Saturday's Valero Alamo Bowl game. Boykin has been charged with assaulting a public servant, which is a third-degree felony, in addition to public intoxication and resisting arrest.

"It's never good to get in trouble the day before the game but that's the way it is I guess", one TCU fan lamented.

San Antonio Police Chief William McManus said Thursday he didn't know whether Boykin was swinging at the officer or someone behind him. After police were called to break up the incident, Boykin allegedly struck an officer in the face. He came back. He was finally subdued after being threated with a (stun gun).

Boykin was arrested following an altercation at a San Antonio nightclub.

Police said he was fighting with the employees as he moved outside, and the group he was with was attempting to contain him. Several officers then wrestled him to the ground.
