Seattle Seahawks backup quarterback Trevone Boykin was arrested for the second time in two weeks on Thursday. This time for a probation violation, TMZ first reported.

According to the website, Boykin’s latest arrest stems from an incident on March 27, in which he was the passenger in an alleged drunk-driving car crash that left multiple people injured outside of a Dallas bar. He was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana and public intoxication. The driver is also facing multiple charges.

At the time of that arrest, Boykin was still on probation after he had previously pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of resisting arrest in December 2015. The new charges stemming from the March incident are a violation of his plea agreement, so he was arrested for violating his probation.

Boykin was taken into custody on Thursday afternoon and released on $2,500 bond. His arraignment has been set for May 3.

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll addressed Boykins March arrest at the NFL league meetings last week.

“Early indications are that we’ll give him an opportunity to be back with us,” Carroll said. “We’ll see what happens though.”

The Hawks may wait to see how Boykin’s arraignment goes next month before making a final decision on his status with the team. He’s facing up to a year in jail and a $4,000 fine.
