The Instagram post included a photo of an assault rifle with the hashtags of both Harvard-Westlake and the Miami Dolphins. He also mentioned former teammates Richie Incognito and Mike Pouncey, who were at the center of the bullying scandal surrounding Martin with the Dolphins back in 2013.
The good news here is that Martin has been taken into custody without any school violence going down. There’s no word on his physical condition. Though, we’re pretty darn sure his mental condition isn’t too good right now.
We’ll have further updates as they become available.
