Security for the hotel followed Griffin after he broke the window, and police say he “appeared intoxicated and unsteady on his feet.” Griffin was stumbling on the sidewalk, nearly walking into traffic, according to local station WKRN.

His bond was set at $1,750 and he was released from jail early Saturday morning.

The 2019 NFL Draft kicked off in Nashville Thursday night. The Texans drafted another tight end — San Diego State’s Kahale Warring — less than an hour before the police response.
