Former Dolphins Player Threatens Violent Revenge

The jmart Instagram account where the Instagram Story image was posted, is verified.

Former Dolphins offensive lineman Jonathan Martin posted a picture of a gun with the words "When you're a bully victim & a coward, your options are suicide, or revenge" on Instagram and tagged former Dolphins teammates Richie Incognito and Mike Pouncey, according to 12up.

Earlier Friday, Martin had sent what appeared to be a clear threat against Harvard-Westlake School in Los Angeles, where he had attended high school. However, the Miami Herald has learned that the team's director of security reached out to the NFL and made the league aware of the post, and the Dolphins are glad that whoever became aware of Martin's post alerted the proper authorities. In wake of the tragedy at Parkland, Florida's Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, Harvard-Westlake made a decision to shut down today as a result of the photo. There are also reports that the image was also posted on Snapchat.

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

The spokesperson was unable to confirm Martin's involvement and said they had no information about there suspect or a possible arrest.

Martin's former agent told Business Insider that he no longer represents the former player, but called the situation a "sad story".

Law enforcement tells TMZ Sports.

Incognito and Pouncey were named as part of a report into a bullying scandal when they were teammates with Martin on the Dolphins, along with John Jerry. Incognito's treatment was said to be particularly vicious, as he reportedly threatened Martin and his family and used racial slurs towards Martin.

"The paper also wrote in 2015 that "[Martin] expressed being uncomfortable as 'one of just a handful of minorities in elite private schools'".
