According to FOX 4 in Dallas, police believe the driver of the car, 26-year-old Shabrika Baley, was drunk when she drove out of a parking garage and backed into the front of the Sidebar Bar at approximately 2 am CST.

The injured included the bartender and four people on the sidewalk. Three of them were transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Boykin, 23, remains in custody as of Monday morning, and faces drug possession and public intoxication charges.

The quarterback signed with the Seahawks undrafted out of TCU in 2016. Shortly before he was drafted, Boykin assaulted a police officer during a bar fight after his senior year. He pled no contest to a charge of resisting arrest and was sentenced to a year of probation. Boykin was also suspended before the 2016 Alamo Bowl as a result.

Boykin, who signed a 3-year deal with the Seahawks in April 2016, appeared in six games as Russell Wilson’s backup, completing 13 of 18 passes for 145 yards, one touchdown and one interception.

Boykin’s arrest follows those of Chicago Bears cornerback Deiondre’ Hall and Green Bay Packers cornerback Makinton Dorleant, who were involved in an incident in Cedar Falls, Iowa early Sunday morning.

According to the Black Hawk County Sheriff’s Department, police saw a crowd fighting outside of Sharkey’s Funhouse around 1 am. Hall was allegedly in the middle of the crowd lacing profanity at the bar staff and patrons.

Police physically removed Hall from the crowd, and said he then refused to answer questions and cooperate, and even spat and yelled in their faces.

In their report, the police added that Hall allegedly resisted being handcuffed and refused to enter the backseat of their squad car. One officer even tasered the cornerback’s left leg in an effort to force him to cooperate.

Dorleant then intervened by attempting to grab Hall, despite the officers’ orders for him to get back.

Hall was charged wit interference, public intoxication, and disorderly conduct. Dorleant was charged with interference.

The two cornerbacks played football at Northern Iowa.
