Former NFL offensive lineman Jonathan Martin has reportedly been taken into custody after a post on his Instagram page led to his former high school in California being shut down, per Matt Stone of ABC News.
According to James Queally, Richard Winton and Eric Sondheimer of the Los Angeles Times, Harvard-Westlake High School closed Friday morning in the wake of a “security risk” due to the disturbing post from Martin’s Instagram account, though it’s not certain if Martin is the one who made the post.
