T.J. Miller has been released from jail after being arrested for battery early Friday morning.

LAPD officials confirm to ET that the Silicon Valley star was arrested between 1 and 1:30 a.m., saying “there was an argument or disagreement that occurred and an arrest was made.”

Police say the incident happened in the back of an Uber, noting the driver made a citizen’s arrest before police arrived and took him into custody. Miller was released from jail a few hours later, but not on bail. The 35-year-old actor was served a misdemeanor battery ticket and will have to appear in court.

ET also confirmed that Miller will still host the Critics' Choice Awards this weekend as originally planned.

Earlier in the night before the incident occured, Miller appeared at two Hollywood parties -- the 2016 GQ Men of the Year Party and the Vulture Awards Season Party -- rocking a gruesome look complete with fake blood as a joke. Miller attended both events with wife Kate Gorney.
