April 27 (UPI) -- Houston Texans tight end Ryan Griffin was arrested Friday evening in Nashville for allegedly punching out a hotel window.

The tight end faces charges of vandalism and public intoxication.

Court records showed that Griffin was released after posting a $1,750 bond. He left the jail about 7:15 a.m. Saturday.

"We are aware of the incident regarding Ryan Griffin. We are gathering information and will have no further comment at this time," the Texans said in a statement.

Police said that Griffin appeared intoxicated and unsteady when they arrived at the hotel. They said that his left hand and fingers were bleeding.

Last season, the tight end caught 24 passes for 305 yards and no touchdowns.

This off-season Griffin underwent surgery for a sports hernia.
