TCU Horned Frogs quarterback Trevone Boykin was arrested early Thursday morning after being involved in a bar altercation and allegedly assaulting a police officer.
Todd L. Davis of NBCDFW.com reported the news. Boykin was allegedly at the bar with friends when he took offense to other patrons' comments after they recognized him. Boykin then allegedly began throwing punches.
He was kicked out of the bar for his alleged part in the altercation, which is said to have escalated outside, with San Antonio police officers and bar security on the scene.
Kolten Parker of the San Antonio Express-News shared Boykin's mugshot:

Police say Boykin's friends had to hold him back from attacking officers. Davis' report indicates Boykin was so aggressive that officers had to threaten use of a stun gun for him to calm down.
He was arrested and charged with third-degree felony assault of a police officer, per Mark Schlabach of ESPN, who noted bond was set at $5,000. According to Schlabach, Boykin was present in his hotel room when coaches did their curfew check at midnight but then proceeded to head out afterward.
TCU later suspended Boykin and wide reciever Preston Miller, confirming the bans in a statement:
Trevone Boykin and Preston Miller have been suspended for Saturday's game due to a violation of team rules. We are disappointed in their actions and apologize to the TCU Horned Frogs Nation, Valero Alamo Bowl and city of San Antonio.
Boykin provided a statement on the incident as well:

An early-season Heisman contender, Boykin threw for 3,575 yards and 31 touchdowns against 10 interceptions during the regular season, adding 612 yards and nine scores on the ground. Bram Kohlhausen, another senior, will likely receive the start versus the Oregon Ducks with Boykin suspended.
