Boyd facing additional charge
ROSEVILLE, Mich. -- Former Detroit Lions wide receiver Tommie Boyd faces another criminal sexual conduct charge after authorities say the high school track coach had sexual contact with a third teen student.
The 38-year-old was arraigned in the latest case Wednesday in Roseville. He was arraigned last week on charges of criminal sexual conduct and accosting a child for immoral purposes in two other cases.
The latest charge accuses Boyd of forcing a then 16-year-old girl to have sex in 2006 at Fraser High School, where he was a substitute teacher and track coach.
Defense lawyer Todd Flood says Boyd is not guilty.
Boyd was being held at the Macomb County Jail and his bond was increased from $300,000 to $400,000 on Wednesday.
Boyd played for the Lions in 1997 and 1998.
