Bullied ex-NFL Player Jonathan Martin Posts Disturbing Instagram Photo, Causes High School to Close


Jonathan Martin, most-known for the bullying scandal with Richie Incognito and the Miami Dolphins, put a chilling post on his Instagram story.

The former offensive lineman showed a picture of a shotgun and shells with a caption that reads, "when you're a bully victim and a coward, your options are suicide or revenge." 

Martin tagged former teammates in the post, including Incognito, as well as his former high school Harvard-Westlake. Although his Instagram is private, it has been verified by the Instagram team. The post comes a week after the shooting at a high school in Florida and law enforcement thought it best to close both campuses to be on the safe side.

Shortly after the post spread on social media, ABC News confirmed Martin was taken into custody.

The police are investigating, but have reason to believe it was in fact Martin who created the post.
