Ex-Dolphin Jonathan Martin Is Detained After Social Media Post Shuts School

Threat on Social Media Prompts Harvard-Westlake to Close Studio City Campus Friday

Kway said the department was unable to publicly confirm that Martin's Instagram stories post was what caused the shutdown. Martin's high school, Harvard Westlake in California, was shut down and the school released the following message. "We will provide more information later today".

In response to the threat, Harvard-Westlake closed in an attempt to keep students and faculty safe.

The post included the words, "When you're a bully victim & a coward, your options are suicide, or revenge". The post linked to the Instagram addresses of two players, Richie Incognito and Mike Pouncey, who reportedly were the ringleaders in bullying Martin when they were teammates in Miami.

The threat was taken as a serious threat by his former high-school which went on lock-down shortly after the post was made on Instagram.

UPDATE: Johnathan Martin is in police custody.

Martin accused Incognito and Pouncey of bullying him in 2013 when they were teammates in Miami, which resulted in an National Football League investigation. That same year, he detailed his struggles growing up in Los Angeles and said in a series of Facebook and Twitter posts that he had attempted suicide while playing in the NFL. The investigation found that the offensive tackle was subjected to "a pattern of harassment" by Incognito, Pouncey and current Giants guard John Jerry.

In the wake of the horrific school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, mental health and gun violence have become highly-discussed topics in the news. The bullying-related post was published by a person who attended the school more than 10 years ago, police said. Martin played the next season for the San Francisco 49ers, but has not appeared in an N.F.L. game since then. "It takes away from your self-confidence, your self-worth, your sanity".
