Coming off his rookie season with the Buffalo Bills, wide receiver Zay Jones now finds himself in some hot water with authorities in Southern California.
TMZ Sports is reporting that Jones was arrested by law enforcement officials in Los Angeles Monday night on vandalism charges after he apparently caused a stir with his brother, Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Cayleb Jones.
“TMZ Sports obtained this video of the crazy fight that went down Monday night in a downtown L.A. apartment building. Zay is stark raving nude while grappling with his brother — Cayleb Jones of the Vikings,” the TMZ Sports report read. “You can hear Zay yelling, “I’m going to fight for Jesus” … and according to witnesses, Cayleb was trying to stop him from jumping out a 30th floor window.”
Completely naked, Jones then left the apartment for a public balcony area and smashed his foot through a window. Photos at the scene, captured by TMZ Sports, shows blood and broken glass where the incident allegedly occurred. Jones’ brother was able to restrain him until police arrived.
The Bills themselves have since released a statement.
