NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — Police arrested and charged Houston Texans tight end Ryan Griffin late Friday night after he allegedly became “disorderly” and punched through a window at a Nashville hotel, Metro police officials confirmed with News 2. 

Griffin, 29, of Houston, Texas, is charged with vandalism over $1,000 and public intoxication. 

According to police documents, police were dispatched to the corner of Union Street and Second Avenue North just before midnight to a report of a disorderly person in custody. 

The defendant told police that Griffin was walking up Union Street, and when he neared Hotel Indigo, he punched one of the front windows and “destroyed” it. 

Police observed that Griffin’s left hand and fingers were bleeding. 

NFL Draft Command Units placed Griffin into custody. According to one of those officers, Griffin was observed to be stumbling on the sidewalk and nearly walked into traffic just before the incident. That officer also noticed that the suspect had watery eyes and a smell of alcohol on his breath. 

Griffin’s friend also told police that he had been “over-served” that evening. 

News 2 has reached out to the Texans and Griffin for comment and are waiting to hear back.
