Suspended Texas LB Demarco Boyd accused of assault

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Suspended Texas linebacker Demarco Boyd is accused of punching a man multiple times after a July 4 multi-car crash.

Boyd has been charged with misdemeanor assault with injury, which carries penalties of up to one year jail and $4,000 in fines if he is convicted. He was suspended by coach Tom Herman on Thursday.

According to an arrest affidavit released Friday, the alleged victim was driving a Jeep that slid into another car on a wet road, causing the pileup. The man told police he was standing next to his car when Boyd approached and punched him. A passenger in the Jeep and another witness told police they saw Boyd punch the driver multiple times, causing him to fall back into the vehicle.

Boyd has played in four career games. It was not immediately clear if he has an attorney.
