The team issued an unusual statement of disappointment after its backup quarterback was arrested and booked into Dallas County Jail early Monday following an incident in which a vehicle in which he was a passenger crashed over a sidewalk and into a Dallas bar.
Dallas Police Department says he was a passenger in a auto that ran up on a sidewalk of a club in the Uptown area, injuring five people. Three of individuals were reportedly hospitalized but none have life-threatening injuries. Boykin was not the driver of the vehicle, but he has been booked on marijuana possession and public intoxication charges.
Boykin was arrested for drug possession and public intoxication.

Boykin's arrest marks his second in less than 15 months.
The Seahawks say they are "disappointed" and are gathering more information. In 2015, he was charged with assaulting a police officer during a bar fight in San Antonio, which led to him being suspended for TCU's Alamo Bowl.
Boykin attended high school in Mesquite and was a starting quarterback for TCU in 2014-15.
Boykin is now the backup quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks. He eventually pleaded guilty to a charge of resisting arrest. He was ordered to take anger management and alcohol awareness courses, along with serving 80 hours of community service and one year of probation.
