SAN ANTONIO – Former TCU quarterback Trevone Boykin has pleaded no contest to resisting arrest over an incident that led to his suspension for his final college game at the Alamo Bowl.

The Bexar County District Attorney’s Office said Thursday that Boykin, who signed with Seattle as an undrafted free agent, received a one-year probation that could result in dismissal of the misdemeanor charge.

A felony charge of assaulting a police officer was dismissed. The incident happened at a bar two days before the Horned Frogs beat Oregon in San Antonio in January.

The 22-year-old Boykin was fined $1,500 and ordered to apologize to the arresting officer, among other stipulations.

The Seahawks open training camp July 30. Jake Heaps and Boykin are the quarterbacks behind Russell Wilson.
