We are not sure what lead to this BIZARRE altercation that ended with the Buffalo Bills’ 2017 second-round draft pick, Zay Jones being arrested and carted off to jail NAKED and bloody!
A video of the altercation obtained by TMZ features a naked Jones fighting and grappling with his brother, wide receiver Cayleb Jones of the Minnesota Vikings, while proclaiming that he is going to “fight for Jesus” in a hallway. According to TMZ, Cayleb was attempting to stop Zay from jumping out of a 30th floor window.
After breaking free, Zay proceeded to run into the apartment of Cayleb’s girlfriend, much to her alarm. At some point, Jones ran back out of the apartment and into a public balcony area, where he proceeded to smash his foot through a glass window. TMZ states that Jones attempted to squeeze through the hole in the window that he created, but was restrained by his brother until police arrived. Jones, bloodied from his windmill-tilting adventure with the window and still buck-naked, was arrested for felony vandalism. He is currently being held in the medical ward of a Los Angeles county jail.
Jones, a star wide receiver at East Carolina University, entered the NFL in 2017 with much fanfare when the Bills acquired him with the 37th-overall pick in the draft, as he had set the NCAA record for career receptions (399) in his time with the Pirates. However, Jones got off to a slow start, failing to catch a potential game-winning touchdown against the Carolina Panthers in Week Two, and was plagued by injuries throughout the season. Jones finished his rookie year with only 27 receptions for 316 yards and two touchdowns, with his longest catch coming in at 33 yards
According to law enforcement sources, Jones is being held in the medical ward of L.A. County Jail. It’s unclear what his condition is at this point.
In a report by Mike Rodak of ESPN, the Bills released a statement shortly after news broke of Jones’ arrest, stating that they are aware of the incident and “are still in the process of gathering more information on the matter. At this point, we will have no further comment.”
