Raiders’ Chandler Jones Claims He Was Injected, Held Against Will
The Chandler Jones / Las Vegas Raiders journey continues.
For those who need a refresher, the star defensive end has been making headlines for his behavior off the field. Last week, Jones had made several tweets pointed at the Raiders organization and owner Mark Davis. He claimed he knows a huge secret about Davis, that his goddaughter was being molested (by whom we do not know), and more.
Weeks before that, he ranted that he didn’t want to play for Raiders head coach Josh McDaniels and General Manager Dave Ziegler after he was locked out of the team’s performance center in Henderson on Labor Day and forced to work out at a normal gym.
While he does seem to be of clear mind in the messages, the latest message is quite concerning.
Chandler Jones shares a handwritten note describing a recent psych hold
On Monday evening, Chandler went to X/Twitter to share several images of a notebook where he describes being taken by the Las Vegas Fire Department and brought via ambulance for a “court hold” to Southern Hills Hospital, and later Seven Hills Hospital. “I was injected with (I don’t know what),” Chandler wrote. “I’m to (sp) strong of a person to be mentally broken. For all of my friends that know me they know!!!”
Along with the photo of the notebook, he also shared a photo of the patient rights form from Seven Hills Hospital.
Jones has had some issues in the past
Back in 2016, Jones was hospitalized after walking into the police department in Foxboro, Massachusetts where the Patriots play. He was shirtless and kneeling when officers approached him. The Boston Globe reported that he was high on synthetic marijuana (a.k.a. Spice) at the time of the incident. He was hospitalized and released the following day. Josh McDaniels was a coach on the Patriots during the incident.
Whatever it is that Jones is battling, we hope he gets the help he’s in need of. But on his terms.
