In a lengthy series of tweets earlier this month, Jones accused Raiders owner Davis of “keeping a big secret” and said he was banned from the team’s facilities because he allegedly found out his goddaughter was being “abused.”
“I wish I could play with my brothers, but Marky Mark has a big secret that only I know!” Jones wrote before the Raiders’ 38-10 loss to the Bills.
Jones claimed Tuesday that he was involuntarily taken to a psychiatric hospital by the Las Vegas Fire Department last week.
“I was taken in against my will by the Las Vegas Fire Department last week,” he said.
‘I got an injection with I don’t know what. They say it was a court order and the Las Vegas police put me on it. I had done nothing wrong. The police said people were worried about me because of my posts online.”
Later, Jones released a disturbing, tearful video questioning the facts surrounding Hernandez’s death. The former Patriot died by suicide in a Massachusetts prison after being convicted of the murder of Odin Lloyd.
