Former Clemson QB Tajh Boyd was arrested in Greenville, SC on an assault and battery charge after a nightclub incident in July. Boyd allegedly shoved a doorman, who had informed him he would have to wait in line to enter the club.
The doorman told Boyd the club was at capacity and he would have to wait in line just like everyone else, according to a police report based on the victim’s account. An argument ensued and the doorman told Boyd he needed to leave.
Boyd then “shoved him with two hands in his chest causing him to fly through the door way knocking another female and himself to the ground,” according to the police report.
Per Greenville Online, the alleged victim did not report the incident earlier until he spoke with an attorney.
Boyd, 25, is a football free agent. He was released by the CFL’s Montreal Alouettes in June.
