Jonathan Martin taken into custody after threatening Instagram post

Former Miami Dolphins offensive tackle Jonathan Martin was detained Friday in Southern California after he posted on Instagram a picture of a shotgun and shell casings. The LAPD is said to be treating this threat very seriously.

A former-NFL player has reportedly been detained by police in the United States after posting a disturbing image to Instagram which is also resulted in the high school he attended to shut its campuses.

The post was hashtagged #HarvardWestlake and #MiamiDolphins.

Former San Francisco 49ers and Miami Dolphins lineman Jonathan Martin has added another chapter to what has been a very sad personal story.

In addition to two Harvard-Westlake classmates, the post also tagged former Dolphins teammates Richie Incognito and Mike Pouncey.

"Last evening, we learned of an Internet post that mentions Harvard-Westlake by name", Harvard-Westlake said in a statement. Harvard-Westlake prep school closed its campuses Friday afternoon in response to the post. "We are working closely with law enforcement and will share more information when we are able".

The current Buffalo Bills player also joked about "running a train" on Martin's sister, and made other crude remarks about her.

Martin's post comes only a week after a gunman killed 14 students at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla. The scandal eventually resulted in Incognito being suspended for eight games by the National Football League for his alleged involvement in the harassment of Martin.

"With everything that happened in Florida, we're cautious", Madison said, referring to the February 14 school shooting in Parkland Fla., where 17 students and staff members were killed. Numerous more than 1,000 text messages between Incognito and Martin that were released contained lewd descriptions and profane language that could be viewed as part of a friendship.

Martin mostly faded from the spotlight ever since the Miami Dolphins bullying scandal blew over.

In 2015, Martin posted on Facebook that difficulties in the profession led him to attempt suicide multiple times.

Martin was the subject of a much-publicized bullying incident during his second and final season with Miami in 2013.

Martin revealed on social media in 2015 that he had attempted suicide several times.
