ESPN reports Seattle Seahawks quarterback Trevone Boykin has been charged with assault stemming from a late-December arrest during TCU's trip to San Antonio for the Valero Alamo Bowl.
A record search by ESPN shows Boykin has been charged with assault causing bodily injury, which is a misdemeanor in Texas. The charge could result in up to a year in jail.
The assault charge stems from a bar fight before he was picked up by Seahawks on Dec. 31.
Preliminary reports said that Boykin allegedly hit an officer after being thrown after a bar.
"Trevone has already agreed to terms with the authorities on a lesser charge," Boykin's agent, Drew Pittman said in a statement to The Seattle Times. "He has been accountable and remorseful from the beginning. Trevone is looking forward to training camp starting July 30th and to competing for a roster spot."
The Seahawks signed Boykin as a free agent after the NFL draft.
ESPN reports if the season started today, Boykin would be in position to back-up starting quarterback Russell Wilson.
Boykin faces arraignment Aug. 1, two days after the Seahawks are scheduled to open training camp.
