Buffalo Bills receiver Zay Jones was released from custody early Wednesday morning after a bizarre incident where he reportedly tried to jump out of a 30-floor window while completely naked.
It all went down Monday night, according to TMZ, who obtained footage of the scene, which took place at Jones’ girlfriend’s Los Angeles apartment building. The gossip site reported that Jones was walking around nude, yelling things like “I’m going to fight for Jesus.”
Video shows Jones trying to get past his brother, Minnesota Vikings player Cayleb Jones. Eventually, Zay can be seen running away from Cayleb, and high-pitched scream can be heard soon after.
TMZ reported that Zay Jones had run out onto a balcony and kicked through a window, then tried to go through the hole in the window before Cayleb stopped him and kept him under control until police arrived.
The area, including the hallway, was a bloody mess.
The Bills organization said Tuesday night, “We are still in the process of gathering more information on the matter. At this point, we will have no further comment.”
Police reportedly took Jones in on a felony vandalism charge and placed him in the L.A. County Jail’s medical ward. Wednesday morning at about 4:45 a.m. local time he was released on bond, which had been set at $20,000.
Jones was selected by the Bills in the second round of the 2017 draft, and signed a 4-year contract worth $6.7 million. He scored two touchdowns during his rookie season.
