MANSFIELD, Texas (AP) - Former TCU quarterback Trevone Boykin was arrested Wednesday at his North Texas home and charged with aggravated assault after his girlfriend accused him of beating her severely at his home.

Boykin was arrested at his Mansfield, Texas, home after Mansfield police reviewed footage of a March 21 incident captured by Boykin's security video system, according to a police statement.

He's been booked into the Mansfield city jail and remains without bond, pending arraignment.

The Seattle Seahawks released Boykin from its practice squad Tuesday after WFAA-TV in Dallas posted an interview with Boykin's girlfriend in which she alleged he broke her jaw.

Boykin, 24, has denied the allegations, and his agent Drew Pittman told the station the allegations are false. Calls to Pittman by The Associated Press went unanswered Wednesday.

The assault allegation is the latest off-field issue for Boykin, who has spent his NFL career with Seattle.

He was arrested in Dallas last year when a vehicle he was a passenger in hit several people on a sidewalk. He fled the scene on foot but was later arrested on misdemeanor charges of public intoxication and possession of marijuana.

In 2015, Boykin was arrested for assaulting a police officer and public intoxication shortly before the Alamo Bowl in San Antonio during his senior season at TCU. Boykin, who was the team's quarterback, was suspended for the bowl game.
