After posting threatening pictures on social media last month, police placed former Miami Dolphins offensive lineman Jonathon Martin under custody. Martin posted a picture of a loaded shotgun tagging his former teammates Richie Incognito and Mike Pouncey who were accused of bullying Martin during their time spent together with the Dolphins. The post also tagged the Miami Dolphins as well as Martin's former high school Harvard-Westlake. In response to the post, Harvard-Westlake shut down both of its campuses for the day.

He (Jonathon Martin) was a possible danger to himself and others.

Reports are now surfacing that not only was Martin in possession of a loaded shotgun at the time he was taken into custody, but he also possessed an ax as well as a large knife. His threatening post came just a week and a half after a mass school shooting in Miami that left 17 students dead. Authorities detained Martin for 72 hours citing the danger he served to himself and the community.
