Jonathan Martin is Crying for Help

Jonathan Martin is Crying for Help”

Martin was being questioned by investigators after a post on his Instagram account showed a shotgun and referred to the private Harvard-Westlake prep school in Los Angeles by name, the official said.

Los Angeles Police Department officials confirmed an individual has been detained in connection with the incident, but did not identify the person.

The Instagram photo in question also included the social media handles for three of Martin's former teammates.

Martin was famously involved with the Miami Dolphins' bullying scandal in 2013 when he accused Richie Incognito and other teammates of bullying and harassment. Out of an abundance of caution, and because the safety of our students, faculty, and our staff is our top priority, we made the decision to close school today.

In response to the Instagram story, Harvard-Westlake closed both of its campuses in Studio City and Beverly Crest, Calif. on Friday, though the LAPD had said there was "no credible threat" against the school. Martin graduated from Harvard Westlake in 2008, according to Sports Illustrated. The post mentioned that suicide and revenge were the only options for a victim of bullying.

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

Martin played in three National Football League seasons, spending 2012 and 2013 with the Dolphins and 2014 with the San Francisco 49ers.

Martin, who is biracial, also spoke out in 2016 about his struggles with suicidal thoughts, admitting that he had struggled with his identity when he and his parents moved to a wealthier area in Los Angeles area. "It takes away from your self-confidence, your self-worth, your sanity".

Long Beach Police arrested two teenagers this week on suspicion of making criminal threats to harm students, and a 14-year-old student at Torrey Pines High School in San Diego was detained Thursday, suspected of making verbal and written threats.
