Former Clemson QB Tajh Boyd arrested for assault and battery

GREENVILLE, S.C. -- Greenville police have charged former Clemson star Tajh Boyd with assault and battery, according to an arrest warrant.

On the night of July 14, Boyd had a verbal altercation and pushed someone in the chest, causing the person to fall into another individual and then to the ground, according to the warrant. The incident happened at On the Roxx, 734 S. Main Street, and involved a door man at the nightclub, according to a police report.

The door man told Boyd the club was at full capacity and he would have to wait in line just like everyone else. An argument ensued and the door man told Boyd he needed to leave, according to the police report based on the victim's account.

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.

Boyd turned himself in Monday morning, Officer Gilberto Franco said. Police took out the warrant Friday.

The victim said he did not report the incident immediately because he wanted to speak with his attorney.

Boyd was the Atlantic Coast Conference Player of the Year in 2012. He conference records for passing yards (11,904) and passing touchdowns (107) during his three years as the Tigers' starter.
