Former Indianapolis Colt Joe Staysniak was arrested on Thursday after allegedly assaulting his son and his son’s boyfriend, as reported by CBS News.

Court records show that Staysniak has been charged with one count of strangulation and two counts of battery resulting in bodily injury. The incident occurred near Staysniak’s home, when the 56-year-old reportedly approached a car containing his son and his son’s boyfriend.

According to an affidavit, Staysniak flashed a gun and pulled both of the men out of the car, physically assaulting them. The son reported that his father had made his lip bleed, while his boyfriend stated that Staysniak had strangled him after grabbing him by the hood of his jacket.

More specifically, the report said:

“A man told police he had been sitting in a car with Staysniak’s son, his boyfriend, near Staysniak’s home,” said the report. “He said Joe Staysniak had come up to the car, pulled him and his son out of it, and hit each of them, according to the affidavit, and said Staysniak flashed a gun, which he felt against his face during the incident. He also said Staysniak grabbed him by the hood of his jacket, strangling him. The son also told deputies his father hit him, making his lip bleed, and struck his boyfriend.”

Staysniak admitted to having a gun, but denied assaulting the boyfriend. He claimed that he had merely confronted the pair after seeing them together with his son in his underwear.

Staysniak played for the Indianapolis Colts from 1993-1995. He spent time on other rosters as well before his NFL career eventually ended.

This is hardly the first time NFL players have been accused of violent assaults. In 2015, free agent C.J. Spillman was charged with sexual assault in Texas. And in 2014, the nation was shocked when video footage was released of running back Ray Rice violently punching out his fiancé in an elevator. Then there is the story of New England Patriot, Aaron Hernandez who was convicted of one murder, acquitted of another double murder, then found dead in his cell by hanging two days after the acquittal.

There are dozens more cases, many happening in just the last 23 years since the beginning of the 21st century.
