Drug charges dropped against Bengals WR, ex-Pitt standout Tyler Boyd
A judge on Wednesday dropped charges against former University of Pittsburgh football player and current Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd.
Boyd, 23, had faced two misdemeanor drug charges and three summary citations. Those charges were dropped during a preliminary hearing, according to Tribune-Review news partner WPXI-TV.
Boyd, a Clairton graduate, was charged after a July 12 crash on Route 837 in Jefferson Hills. Police arrived on the scene of the crash about 3 a.m. and found no one in the Mercedes-Benz. Investigators said the vehicle crossed the center line and then smashed into the guardrail on the opposite side of the road.
The car was registered to Boyd, and inside police found an open bottle of cognac, an unopened bottle of peach vodka, vape pens and vape cartridges with distilled marijuana inside.
Boyd told police someone else was driving his car at the time and he was in Shadyside.
