Southern California high school closed after threat from former NFLer Jonathan Martin

Jonathan Martin

According to Matt Stone of ABC 8, former Miami Dolphins player Jonathan Martin was taken into custody on Friday after an Instagram post that featured an apparent threat to former teammates.

Martin posted threatening pictures on his Instagram story, showing a shotgun and ammunition with the caption "When you're a bully victim & a coward, your option are suicide, or revenge".

Harvard Westlake closed the school in the wake of the threats - telling students to stay off-campus in an abundance of caution.

Los Angeles Police Department Officer Tony Kuey said the former student, who is now an adult, made no direct threat against the school.

In October 2013, Martin left the Dolphins team facility citing "emotional" reasons, that were soon discovered to be related to a pattern of harassment from some of his teammates, most notably Incognito. The Carolina Panthers claimed Martin off waivers in March, but Martin retired before training camp opened in 2015, citing a back injury. He also tagged Harvard-Westlake High School, the California high school Martin graduated from in 2008 before playing his college career at Stanford.

The Instagram account has no profile photo, but is a verified account with 347 followers.

Miami Dolphins tackle Jonathan Martin (71) at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Massachusetts on October 27, 2013.

Martin was taken into custody on Friday afternoon.

He ultimately quit the team and debated giving up on his career, feeling such psychological duress that he said he twice considered committing suicide.

"I have no desire to ever see or talk to him", Martin told USA Today at the time.

Martin was traded to the San Francisco 49ers before the 2014 season, weeks after the Wells report was released.
