(TheLastPatriotNews.com) – Chandler Jones, a former defensive end for the Raiders, finds himself in legal trouble again. The Las Vegas Review-Journal recently reported that Jones was arrested a second time in a single month.
According to the publication, Jones’ arrest was due to not complying with a domestic violence temporary protection order. While the police didn’t provide the specifics of the recent arrest, it was mentioned that officers responded to a call around 1:15 p.m. PT at a Las Vegas address.
Jones, once regarded as one of the top defensive players in the National Football League (NFL), has faced a string of troubles. On September 28, he was arrested for two instances of violating a domestic violence protective order. Jones is said to have taken belongings from a woman’s house, followed by sending her a video where he can be seen burning those belongings. The Las Vegas Review-Journal identified the items as a recycling bin, a pool net, and dog toys.
The woman, who identified herself as Jones’ ex-girlfriend, alleged that she had been a victim of domestic abuse by Jones. She told The Athletic that Jones had pushed her into a railing and had tried to gain entry into her room while acting in a confused manner.
Apart from these incidents, Jones also made public allegations against Raiders coach and ex-Patriots offensive coordinator, Josh McDaniels. In a live stream, he commented on the tragic death of former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez, stating, “Y’all don’t know what Josh McDaniels really did to Aaron Hernandez. … Y’all thought Aaron Hernandez killed himself in jail.” Additionally, Jones asserted that he was forcibly taken to a mental health facility by the Las Vegas Fire Department, where he was “injected” with an unidentified substance.
Following these events and his arrest, the Raiders decided to terminate Jones’ contract. His association with the team ended just a little over a season into a three-year deal worth $51 million. During his last active season, Jones managed to record 4.5 sacks over 15 games. Given the series of incidents and the legal trouble, it remains uncertain whether Jones will return to the NFL.
