Former Clemson star quarterback Tajh Boyd turned himself into police after a warrant was issued for his arrest for assault and battery.

According to Greenville Online, Boyd pushed someone in the chest after a verbal argument.

“On 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.”

The Greenville police issued a warrant for Boyd’s arrest on Friday, and he turned himself in on Labor Day.

Boyd holds Clemson records for most passing yards (11,904) and passing touchdowns (107).

His college success did not translate to success at the next level, however. He was a New York Jets sixth-round pick in 2014 and ended up being released by the club before the 2014 season began.

Boyd then signed on with the Fall Experimental League and played with the Boston Brawlers and Florida Blacktips before signing with the Pittsburgh Steelers on a one-year deal in 2015. He did not stick with Pittsburgh, however, and was released before last season began.
