Former NFL player detained for Instagram post

ABC News reported that authorities have taken Martin into custody, and TMZ Sports reported that police said, "The individual we believe to be responsible for the social media post has been detained and the investigation is ongoing". They say he was detained, but is not in LAPD custody.

News reports that Martin was at a medical facility in the Los Angeles area seeking treatment Friday night.

A pair of Harvard-Westlake High School campuses, in Los Angeles suburbs Studio City and Beverly Crest, were closed Friday after a threat made on social media.

Former Miami Dolphins offensive lineman Jonathan Martin reportedly has been apprehended after his alleged - and shocking - Instagram post forced the shutting down of a school Martin previously attended. School officials said the image had been attributed to a former student, but did not identify the person.

-The message references Harvard Westlake High School and shows a shotgun with multiple rounds of ammunition lying on a surface.

School officials at Harvard-Westlake sent an emergency alert to students and staff early Friday evacuating campus and canceling school. "We are working closely with law enforcement and will share more information when we are able". Incognito, who is white, sometimes made jokes about slavery in the presence of Martin, who is Black, the report said.

CBS News has not confirmed whether Martin himself posted the disturbing image.

The post also hasthtagged former Dolphins teammates Richie Incognito and Mike Pouncey.

-Incognito and Pouncey allegedly bullied Martin while they were all members of the Miami Dolphins.

The incident comes a week after 17 students were killed in a mass shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, just 33 miles from the home of the Miami Dolphins. After two seasons in Miami, Martin was traded by Miami to San Francisco.

Martin was subject to bullying in the Dolphins locker room during the 2012 and 2013 seasons.

In 2015, Martin wrote that he attempted to kill himself "on multiple occasions" during his National Football League career due to anxiety and depression.

This is not the first outburst from Martin, who wrote on Facebook two years ago he suffered from depression and wanted to committ suicide on several occasions.
