Chandler Jones was arrested around midnight on Friday in Las Vegas, according to police records.

Jones has sparked fears for his mental health of late, as he accused Raiders owner Mark Davis of protecting someone who allegedly molested his goddaughter, and later appeared to suggest that Las Vegas coach Josh McDaniels was somehow responsible for Aaron Hernandez’s 2017 death.

Now, according to Clark County Detention Center records, Jones, 33, has been arrested for violating a domestic violence temporary protective order.

The Raiders said in a statement, ‘The Raiders are hopeful that Chandler Jones receives the care that he needs. He, his family, and all those involved are in our thoughts. As this is now a legal matter, we will not be providing further comment.’ 

Records show that Jones’ bail has been set at $15k.

TMZ reported that Jones was ‘cooperative’ while being taken into custody.

The defensive end has not played this season and has acted erratically on social media.

In a lengthy sequence of tweets earlier this month, Jones accused Raiders owner Davis of ‘holding a huge secret,’ and said he’s been barred from the team’s facilities since he allegedly found out his goddaughter was being ‘molested.’

‘I wish I could play with my brothers, but marky mark is holding a huge secret that only I know!’ Jones wrote before the Raiders’ 38-10 loss vs. the Bills.

Jones claimed on Tuesday that he was taken involuntarily to a mental health hospital by the Las Vegas fire department last week.

‘I was taken in by the Las Vegas fire department last week against my will,’ he said.

‘I was injected with I don’t know what. They say it was a court hold and the Las Vegas police put me on it. I hadn’t done anything wrong. The police said people were concerned about me because of my posts online.’

Later, Jones released a troubling, tearful video in which he cast doubt on the facts around Hernandez’s death. The former Patriot died by suicide in Massachusetts prison after being convicted for the murder of Odin Lloyd.

In the video discussing his former teammate Hernandez, Jones claimed ‘Y’all don’t know what Josh McDaniels really did to Aaron Hernandez. ‘Y’all thought Chico killed himself in jail? Y’all thought my n***** killed himself in jail?’

‘Josh McDaniels had my twin Aaron Hernandez killed at industrial park, not in jail,’ Jones later wrote on Twitter.

The Athletic’s Dianna Russini reported earlier this month that ‘Raiders players and others around the league have shared concerns’ over Jones and his wellbeing.
