Former TCU quarterback facing drug charges

A former Texas Christian University quarterback was taken into custody by Dallas police during the early morning hours of March 27 following an alleged drunk driving accident. While Trevone Boykin was not behind the wheel of the car involved, police claim to have found 7 grams of marijuana in a bag the 23-year-old former signal caller is said to have admitted was his. Boykin was transported to the Dallas County Jail for processing, and his bond was subsequently set at $500.

Underage drinking, driving and Texas law

You will also run afoul of the law if you are found to have an open can of beer or bottle of alcohol on the passenger seat of your car. In short, alcohol and driving do not mix, and if you think otherwise, you could be in for some serious legal difficulties.
