Per ESPN's Mike Rodak, Buffalo Bills wide receiver Zay Jones was charged with felony damage to property following an incident involving his brother, Vikings wide receiver Cayleb Jones, on Monday night in downtown Los Angeles.

On Tuesday, TMZ posted a video of the incident. A man, presumably Jones, is heard off camera saying, "I'm going to fight for Jesus." Subsequently, now in view, Zay Jones appears in a hallway where his brother tries to stop him. Then, a fully nude Zay Jones runs past his brother, followed by screams by someone off-screen - assumed to be Cayleb Jones' girlfriend.

Blood was also shown on the walls and floor.

We are aware of the incident involving Zay Jones. We are still in the process of gathering more information on the matter. At this point, we will have no further comment.

Rodak writes that LAPD officer Luis Garcia said Jones was breaking glass doors and windows at the apartment building - there's a photo of a window smashed through by Zay Jones' foot.

22-year-old was booked Tuesday morning, with bail set at $20,000. He was released early Wednesday and has an April 11 court appearance.

A second-round pick in 2017, Jones had 27 receptions for 316 yards and two touchdowns as a rookie.
