Former NFL player Joe Staysniak has found himself in custody.

Staysniak, who once played for the Indianapolis Colts, was placed under arrest for assaulting his son and his son’s boyfriend in Indiana.

Caitlin O’Kane of CBS News reported the news, revealing that the son and boyfriend were sitting in a car when Staysniak approach the vehicle and forcibly took his son out of the car, and struck him in the face.

He also said Staysniak grabbed him by the hood of his jacket, strangling him,” O-Kane writes.

Staysniak admitted to police that he did have a gun in his possession and that he grabbed the boyfriend’s hood after he saw that his son was in his underwear with him. He also told the boyfriend to never come back to the property but says he never hit the boyfriend.

The affidavit says the son reported that his father displayed a firearm and told him and the boyfriend “that they’re lucky he saw who it was.”

Guy A. Relford, Staysniak’s lawyer released a statement on Facebook saying that the former NFLer was initially suspicious of a car parked near his residence after a neighbor alerted him.
