Seattle Seahawks quarterback and former TCU star Trevone Boykin has been charged with misdemeanor assault stemming from his arrest in December, according to ESPN.

Boykin will face an assault causing bodily injury charge, which carries a maximum of one year in jail. His arraignment is scheduled for Aug. 1.

Boykin, who went undrafted in this years draft after leaving TCU following his suspension for the incident, was charged with assaulting a police officer near a bar during his team’s trip to the Alamo Bowl. The officer reportedly suffered lacerations in the altercation.

Boykin’s current charge is less than what he could have received, and was imposed after he reached a deal with authorities, according to his agent, Drew Pittman. 

“Trevone has already agreed to terms with the authorities on a lesser charge,” Pittman said in the statement. “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.”

Boykin has played well so far in rookie camp, and is in position to be in a second-string role when Seattle opens training camp on July 30.
