Jonathan Martin, the former NFL offensive lineman, is reportedly in a mental health facility, according to CBS Sports. The Los Angeles, Calif. authorities also said there is no threat to Los Angeles-area schools.
Martin, who played for the Miami Dolphins and the San Francisco 49ers, was detained on Friday after posting a disturbing message on his Instagram account earlier that day. He shared an image with a gun and ammunition that said, “When you’re a bully victim and a coward, your options are suicide or revenge.”
He has been battling emotional issues for years. When he played for the Dolphins in 2013, he checked into a hospital for emotional distress after being bullied.
In the image, he also tagged his former high school, the Dolphins, and the former teammates, who bullied him in the NFL. The authorities are working with those individuals to ensure that they stay safe.
The thought, according to many, was that Martin was going to shoot up his former high school, who cancelled classes on Friday. With there now being no threat, the Harvard-Westlake School May re-open on Monday.
There have been numerous threats — and the authorities are not playing around, as they are taking them all serious — since a gunman shot up a high school in Parkland, Fla. on Valentines Day.
