Boykin allegedly did not stop struggling on the ground until the officer threatened to tase him, at which time he was arrested.
Boykin was still being held at the San Antonio Magistrate as of Thursday morning and has been charged with a third-degree felony for assaulting a police officer as well as charges of resisting arrest and public intoxication. His bond was set at $5,000.
The original fight inside the bar reportedly began when, according to reports, patrons at the bar recognized Boykin and talked trash; the player became enraged and then allegedly hit a bar employee before being escorted out into the street.
TCU later suspended Boykin and wide receiver 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.
