Last week, TMZ reported that former Auburn running back Tre Mason, who now plays for the Los Angeles Rams, had been involved in five different police incidents in the past four months. Mason’s family, reportedly, was concerned about his mental health as well.
TMZ’s latest report states that on July 23, Mason displayed some odd behavior after cops were called to his house. His mother called the police because he was “acting unusual and making irrational statements.” The officer involved doesn’t think Mason is capable of making decisions on his own.
Tre Mason Incident Report, via TMZ:
When Tre saw the cops, he threatened to call the White House and have them all fired — and made bizarre statements about Al Qaeda … so says the report.
Upon inspection, cops noticed a hole that had been punched in the wall of Tre’s bedroom and a broken vase and lamp. Tre also had a cut on his hand, but was refusing medical attention.
Furthermore, Mason has been a no-show at Rams training camp so far this year, and head coach Jeff Fisher is reportedly concerned. They reportedly don’t even know where he is.
Tre Mason hasn’t reported to Rams camp and hasn’t been speaking with the team. Jeff Fisher is concerned. https://t.co/gFsxxsDZ0D

Mason, who is still just 22 years old, was a key piece during Auburn’s run to the BCS title game in 2013. In that season, he ran for an astounding 1,816 yards and 23 touchdowns on 317 carries. He was later drafted by the Rams in the third round of the 2014 NFL Draft.
As a Ram, Mason has been productive as well. In his two seasons, he’s rushed for 972 yards and five touchdowns on 254 carries.
It’s clear that Mason is going through a rough patch. Let’s hope he gets his life back on track soon.
