C.J Spillman has been officially charged with sexual assault stemming from an incident at the Dallas Cowboys team hotel last September.

According to Michael O’Keeffe of the New York Daily News, a grand jury indicted Spillman on sexual assault charges on Monday.

The incident allegedly occurred at the Gaylord Texan Resort and Convention Center in Grapevine, Texas on Sept. 20, 2014.

Dallas head coach Jason Garrett said they would wait for charges to be handed down before deciding on a course of action. With no charges being handed down last season, Spillman ultimately appeared in all 16 games for the Cowboys last season and recorded 16 tackles.

Spillman is now a free agent and that burden is no longer on the Cowboys to deal with.

Spillman has spent seven seasons in the NFL with the Cowboys, San Francisco 49ers and San Diego Chargers.
