Seattle Seahawks backup quarterback Trevone Boykin’s girlfriend, Shabrika Bailey, spoke to the media about an incident with him that left her bloody and with a broken jaw.
Bailey spoke to a Dallas ABC affiliate with a swollen and wired shut jaw. She told a horrific story of being choked unconscious, having her jaw broken and spending several days in the hospital.
“So he goes into a choke. I remember him choking me and I’m trying to calm him down. And I just couldn’t. And I blacked out. I just couldn’t calm him down at all,” Bailey told WFAA.
“The pressure was just hard. The pressure got hard to where I just remember just collapsing completely. And I just woke up in a puddle of blood on the kitchen floor. My whole right side was full of blood on the kitchen floor.”
Bailey says Boykin eventually dragged her to a bathtub, took her clothes off and tried to clean her up. Hours later, on Wednesday, she said Boykin drove her to Dallas Regional Medical Center in Mesquite. But when hospital staff separated the couple and began asking them questions independently, she said Boykin fled the hospital and never returned.
Bailey suffered a broken jaw on both her left and right sides. Then, because she was having difficulty breathing from a swollen and constricted airway, she was airlifted to Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas for further treatment. She was released from the hospital on Saturday, three days later.
This is not at all a good look for Boykin, if what his girlfriend is saying is true. It’s a terrifying incident that, if found to be true, will likely end his career in the NFL.
