According to Matt Stone of ABC, former Miami Dolphins lineman Jonathan Martin has been taken into custody. A post on Martin's Instagram account appears to have shut down a Los Angeles high school on Friday.

Martin's post was made on Instagram as a story either Thursday night or Friday morning. In it, he hashtags his high school - Harvard-Westlake High School - and the Miami Dolphins. He lists four peoples' names - James Dunleavy, T.J. Taylor, Richie Incognito and Mike Pouncey. The first two are former classmates - the last two are former teammates on the Dolphins.

Martin's post features a shotgun and a number of bullets. There's a quote too.

"When you're a bully victim & a coward, your options are suicide, or revenge."

Stone had a bit more on the school's closing as well.

Martin was the subject of a bullying scandal a few years back when he was part of the Dolphins. Incognito, his teammate at the time, was suspended by the Dolphins.

If Martin did indeed post this himself, let's hope that he gets the help he needs. We'll keep you updated.
