Former Clemson quarterback Tajh Boyd was in Municipal Court in Greenville on Wednesday morning with an assault charge stemming from a nightclub incident in July but all charges have been dismissed pending 40 hours of community service and restitution to the victim.
"I'm pleased that we were able to come up with a resolution," Boyd said to reporters after the hearing. "Obviously, I didn't really want this to be ongoing. Again, the situation is an unfortunate situation."
Boyd released a public statement on his Tajh Boyd foundation facebook account soon after the conclusion of the hearing.
"I am pleased to announce that all charges against me have been dismissed! I want to thank my faithful friends, family, fans, media and members of our community for all your support! I have been encouraged by so many of your comments and messages throughout this process and for your friendship I am eternally grateful! I look forward to sharing this experience with our youth as I use my testimony to heighten understanding and develop growth within the next generation.
Reputation is defined as the common opinion that people have about someone; therefore our reputation is at the hands of others. The only thing we can control is our character! I look forward to enhancing mine and I'm anxious to see what lies ahead. Last but certainly not least, I want to thank God for granting me the platform to be a blessing in the lives of so many. This is not a responsibility I take lightly and I will do my best to accomplish the purpose he has for me."
