Former Clemson quarterback Tajh Boyd turned himself into authorities on Tuesday to face an assault and battery charge. Authorities say he pushed a bouncer who told him he couldn't enter a crowded bar in Greenville on the night of July 14.

The police report says Boyd was trying to get in the On the Roxx bar around 11:30 p.m. that night when the bouncer told him he would have to wait because the club was at capacity. Investigators say that Boyd then pushed the bouncer and knocked a woman to the ground as he fell.
Police spokesman Gilberto Franco said in an email the bouncer waited until the next day to report the incident, and it took investigators two months to investigate the encounter.
Boyd was the starting quarterback from 2011 to 2013 and was one of the most prolific passers in the school's history. He finished his career with 107 touchdown passes and 39 interceptions as well as almost 12,000 passing yards.
