Chandler Jones’ troubling situation continues to unfold.
Early Friday morning, Raiders defensive end Chandler Jones was arrested and is currently being held at the Clark County Detention Center, as confirmed by the Clark County In-Custody website.
The 33-year-old pass rusher, who has exhibited erratic behavior on social media over the past month, has not participated in any games for the Raiders this season and is listed on the non-football illness list.
The Raiders issued a statement expressing their hope that Chandler Jones receives the necessary care, with thoughts extending to him, his family, and all parties involved. Given that this is now a legal matter, the organization will not provide further comments.
“The Raiders are hopeful that Chandler Jones receives the care that he needs,” a statement from the organization read. “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.”
Jones was arrested for violating a temporary protection order and is slated to appear in court on December 4th. Bail has been set at $15,000.
