Former Texas Christian University standout and NFL quarterback Trevone Boykin is once again behind bars, this time being accused of selling TCU memorabilia online but never delivering the merchandise to the buyer, according to court records.
Boykin also has another charge after he failed to pay for a hotel room in Arlington, according t NBCDFW.
“Records from the Tarrant County Jail show Boykin was arrested this week on two charges of misdemeanor theft of property from $100 to $750. Records also show he was wanted in Arlington for misdemeanor alleged theft of service between $100 and $750 that occurred on Oct. 29.
Arlington police told NBC 5 Tuesday that Boykin checked into a hotel on North Watson Road under an alias and that a manager at the hotel “canceled the reservation due to alleged fraudulent credit card use.” The manager told police Boykin left the hotel without paying for the room, which brought about the misdemeanor theft of service charge.”
That report state Boykin “duped at least two people into paying him for collegiate memorabilia he’d posted for sale on Instagram.”
“The document alleges one man paid $250 for a TCU jersey on Jan. 1, 2019 and another paid $315 for a TCU jersey and a ring on Jan. 9, 2019. The money was sent to Boykin’s bank account via Venmo, according to police, but the buyers said they never received the memorabilia from Boykin and that they never received a refund.”
Boykin faces three other charges, stemming from a pending domestic violence case in Tarrant County with those bonds totaling $100,000.
The former Seattle Seahawks QB served as the backup quarterback for the team in 2016 and 2017, appearing in five games and completing 13 of 18 passes for 145 yards with a touchdown and an interception.
