Boyd To Stand Trial On Charges Related To Jefferson Hills DUI

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – University of Pittsburgh wide receiver Tyler Boyd will stand trial on DUI charges.

Boyd appeared in court for a preliminary hearing Wednesday morning, where he was held for court on all charges.

Last month, Boyd was charged in relation to a DUI in Jefferson Hills.

Along with DUI, Boyd is facing summary charges of underage drinking, driving on the left side of the roadway, careless driving, and a minor driving with alcohol in his system.

The Pitt wide receiver was taken into custody after he was pulled over on Route 885.

According to police paperwork, the officer who pulled him over "smelled the moderate odor of an alcoholic beverage about Boyd," who said he "had 'two shots' but did not start drinking until after the NBA Finals game he was watching."

The 20-year-old was placed under arrest after being administered a breathalyzer that tested positive for alcohol, police paperwork said.
