UNM Linebacker Rayshawn Boyce Suspended Indefinitely

According to a report from multiple media outlets, including KOB-TV in Albuquerque, 22-year- old UNM linebacker Rayshawn Boyce was arrested on Sunday on various charges from an incident last month.

Boyce has been charged with one count each for aggravated battery, negligent use of a deadly weapon, battery of a household member, and criminal damage to private property stemming from an incident in which Boyce allegedly attacked a fellow UNM teammate and his ex-girlfriend at her house. Boyce then reportedly fired multiple rounds of his weapon at his ex-girlfriend’s car while leaving the scene.

UNM head football coach Bob Davie suspended Boyce indefinitely due to the charges. A junior college transfer, Boyce played in eight games for the Lobos in limited action.

“I want to emphasize that we have standards and expectations of conduct for all UNM student-athletes that include civility and mutual respect,” UNM athletic director Eddie Nunez said in a statement. “We cannot, and will not, accept anything less.”
