NFL's Trevone Boykin Charged with Assault ... For Alamo Bowl Bar Fight

6/28/2016 1:09 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0628_trevone-boykin_mug

Ex-TCU quarterback Trevone Boykin has been charged with assault for allegedly striking a police officer after he was thrown out of a bar days before the Alamo Bowl ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

Boykin -- who has since signed with the Seattle Seahawks -- was captured on video being physically removed from Pat O'Briens bar in San Antonio on Dec. 31st ... while throwing punches at staff on the way out. 

Once he was in the street, Boykin can be seen rushing toward bike cops who rolled up to the scene. Officials say he struck one of the officers while they tried to take him into custody.

Boykin was initially booked for assaulting a public servant (a 3rd degree felony), public intoxication and resisting arrest.

But it appears he caught a huge break -- 'cause according to court docs obtained by TMZ Sports, the 22-year-old was only officially charged with one count of misdemeanor assault with bodily injury. 

If convicted, Boykin faces up to 1 year in jail. 

Court docs say ... multiple officers witnessed the alleged assault. The witnesses say they saw multiple cuts and scrapes on the victim. 

Boykin is due to be arraigned in August.

Richard Sherman's family is awesome! 

We got the NFL star's mom, Beverly, and his brother, Branton, out in L.A. -- where his mother is trying to launch her acting career ... and they couldn't have been nicer. 

Turns out, they're really big fans of NBA star Nate Robinson -- a Seattle native -- and hope his tryout with the Seahawks went well. 

As we previously reported, Nate -- who played college football at the Univ. of Washington -- worked out with the team and is hoping to land a spot as a defensive back. 

"He'll be a good addition to the L.O.B." Branton said. 

They also raved about Russell Wilson and Ciara -- and while they haven't been invited to the wedding, they LOVE the couple and wish them nothing but the best.

"Nate's tryout with the Seahawks went well and was impressive," Goodwin says. 

The two sides have not struck any sort of a deal but we're told, "[Nate] may go back later. He's going to focus on being ready for that opportunity should it occur again or an NBA opportunity."

When asked which sport Nate would prefer if offered a shot in the NFL and NBA -- Goodwin replied, "He wants to play basketball but will play football if the opportunity presents itself."

"He's a world class athlete and just wants the opportunity to continue to play."

Marshawn Lynch Never Coming Back To NFL ... Says Rap Star Cousin

6/2/2016 10:18 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Pro football is just "not fun" for Marshawn Lynch anymore ... so says his famous rap star cousin who's 100% positive Beast Mode is NOT returning to the NFL. 

Marshawn's cuz Mistah F.A.B. sat down with with "The Breakfast Club" -- when Charlamagne Tha God asked about rumors that Lynch is thinking about coming back to the league. 

"He's done. It's not fun to him no more," F.A.B. said.

Long story short ... F.A.B. says Marshawn is super wealthy (saved his NFL cash like a boss) and has been spending his time building schools and affordable housing across the world. 

In fact, F.A.B. says Lynch wants to mentor young players so they can get to "mogul status" too. '

Sorry, Seahawks fans ... 

Seattle Seahawks RB I'd Stop Listening to Future ... If Russell Wilson Asked

5/19/2016 12:12 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Now, THIS is dedication!!! 

Seattle Seahawks rookie running back Alex Collins says he's so committed to the team, he'd even give up listening to Future's music ... if that's what his QB wanted. 

It's a big deal ... 'cause Future's dope. Everyone knows that. 

But everyone also knows Russell Wilson's got some issues with the guy (since he's engaged to Future's baby mama) ... putting Collins (and the rest of the Seahawks who like rap) in a tough spot. 

Alex says it's a no-brainer -- his QB comes first.

There's more ... we also asked Alex if he would consider cutting his dreadlocks to avoid comparisons to Marshawn Lynch. But that's where the RB draws the line. 

Meantime, check out his highlights ... dude's a monster.

"I just came back from Hawaii actually with some of my friends. I try to make sure I go every year. There's like 50 of us. We even see some guys we really don't like so much from work but that's part of the job."

Richard Sherman Accused of Hoverboard Stiffery ... Pay Up Or Else!

3/9/2016 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

030816-richard-sherman-tmz-02A hoverboard company has declared war on Richard Sherman -- claiming the NFL star ordered 54 custom Seahawks colored scooters ... only to screw them over when it came time to pay up.

The company behind the allegations is Sidekick Group Corp. -- which makes the SideKick Wheels 2-wheeled scooter. 

Sidekick claims Sherman met with company honchos back in 2015 -- and agreed to buy 54 custom boards at a significantly discounted rate provided Sherman post about the board on social media.  

The company says the boards usually go for $1,295 a pop ... but they chopped the price all the way down to $500 for Sherman.   

Problem is ... Sidekick says Sherman never posted anything online and most importantly never sent a check. So now the company says it's stuck with 54 Seahawks boards they don't know what to do with.  

They fired off a letter to Sherman last month demanding payment -- or else they would take legal action. So far, we're told it's been radio silence from Sherman's camp. 

We reached out to Sherman for comment -- so far, no word back.

Kam Chancellor 911 Call 'They're Bad News' 'Pounding On Our Doors'

3/3/2016 2:57 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

The gym staffer who called 911 on Kam Chancellor said the Seahawks player was "bad news" -- and had been "pounding" on the doors ... even though the gym was closed.  

TMZ Sports obtained the 911 call ... in which the woman at the Redmond Athletic Club in Washington describes 5 people (3 black and 2 white) who came to the gym unannounced.

The woman said she explained that the gym was closed, but the group refused to go -- "They're trying to get in and we've told them multiple times they need to leave."

At one point, the woman says, "I don't know if they're homeless kids ... I know there used to be a lot of heroin addicts around here."

Eventually, cops came to the scene and spoke with Chancellor -- who explained his side of the story. No arrests were made and cops say Kam was a "super nice guy."

The owner of the gym says race was never a factor -- and that his staffers did what they were instructed to do in a situation involving unknown people trying to enter the gym.  

Kam Chancellor Gym Owner Says Race Not an Issue In Police Incident

Exclusive Details

0303-kam-chancellor-GETTY-01The owner of the Washington gym Kam Chancellor was scouting out Wednesday night tells TMZ Sports he has reached out to the Seahawks star to explain why his employees called police on him ... and says he still wants to make a deal.

If you haven't heard ... Chancellor says he was scouting the Redmond Athletic Club last night because he was interested in buying the place -- and went to the building with friends to check it out. 

Problem was ... the gym was not open and staffers inside called police because they were concerned. 

Kam tweeted, "They told the cops I was trying to rob the place because I was looking into the glass asking for help."

Many people believe the call to cops may have been racially motivated because Kam is black. 

But we spoke with the owner of the gym, Ryan Neal, who tells us, "We have reviewed the situation and can assure you that race was not an issue here."

Neal says the gym has recently had attemped break-ins and the staff was told to call cops if it appeared anyone was trying to gain access to the gym while it was closed.

Neal says he has reached out to Chancellor -- and says he would love to talk business if Kam is still interested in buying the gym. 

Stay tuned ...
