As security worked to stop the fight, people were moved outside.
At that point, police say bike officers arrived and came upon Boykin as he was taking swings and say the player indiscriminately hit an officer.
Upon threatening to tase him, police say he calmed down.Full police report. Charges initially listed as "Assault/PO, Resisting Arrest, Public Intoxication". #TCU #WFAATCU pic.twitter.com/GfVJeNEZ66-- Mike Leslie (@MikeLeslieWFAA) December 31, 2015
