Seattle Seahawks quarterback Trevone Boykin was arrested early Monday in Dallas on misdemeanor charges of marijuana possession and public intoxication after a car in which he was a passenger struck pedestrians and then a night club, injuring eight people -- and sending seven to local hospitals.

According to police, at 2:10 a.m. local time, Shabrika Bailey, 25, backed up at a high rate of speed, striking pedestrians on a sidewalk and then a wall of Sidebar in Dallas. The impact of the car with the building caused bottles of alcohol and an ice cooler to fall inside Sidebar, hitting and injuring the bartender.

Boykin is currently on probation stemming from a 2015 incident while he was the starting quarterback at TCU. He pled guilty to a misdemeanor resisting arrest charge from the incident in June, and had to pay $1,500 fine, was placed on one year probation and was ordered to do 80 hours of community service.

Boykin was also suspended by TCU for the Alamo Bowl after another incident at a bar on Dec. 31, 2015.

Bailey, the driver of the car, was charged with two counts of intoxication assault with a vehicle resulting in serious bodily injury, a felony charge.

Boykin signed with the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent last season. He completed 13-18 passes for 145 yards with one touchdown and one interception in five appearances last season.
