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.
