NFL player Chandler Jones has claimed he was forced into an ambulance against his will and taken to a psychiatric facility.
The Las Vegas Raiders defensive end made the allegations in a social media post on Monday evening.
“I was taken in last week against my will by the Las Vegas Fire Department,” he said in a handwritten note Posted to X, the platform formerly known as Twitter.
“I don’t know what I was injected with. They say it was a trial and the Las Vegas police sentenced me to it. I didn’t do anything wrong.”
“The police said people were worried about me because of my online posts.”
Jones said he was taken to Southern Hills Hospital in Las Vegas before being transferred to Seven Hills Behavioral Health Hospital in Henderson, a suburb about 15 miles southeast of the city.
Monday was reportedly his first day out of the facility.
Jones also railed against the Raiders and their leadership in his note.
The player claimed he called Dave Ziegler, the team’s general manager, but received no response.
The Raiders placed Jones on the team’s non-football illness list last week, meaning he will be off the field indefinitely. NFL.com reported.

“It’s a personal situation and a private matter,” Raiders head coach Josh McDaniels said at the time.
“We’ve dealt with it and I’m not going to talk about it.”
Jones began his career with the New England Patriots and also played for the Arizona Cardinals before joining the Raiders last year.
The Las Vegas Fire Department, Las Vegas Police Department, the Raiders and a representative for Jones did not immediately respond to the US Sun’s request for comment.
