TCU quarterback Trevone Boykin has been charged with felony assault of a police officer.

San Antonio Police spokesman Sgt. Jesse Salame said Boykin is being held on $5,000 bond. Bexar County Magistrate's website showed Boykin was arrested at 1:45 a.m. Thursday.

A police report said the 22-year-old was fighting with employees at a bar. People whom Boykin was with told police they would take him back to the hotel.

Police said Boykin then charged at responding officers and swung at one officer before he was taken to the ground. The report also said Boykin resisted arrest until he was told they would use a stun gun on him.

TCU plays Oregon on Saturday in the Alamo Bowl.

The school said in a statement that they are aware of the situation and will "closely monitor" it and "evaluate additional details as they become available."
