Chandler Jones, the Las Vegas Raiders star pass rusher, has claimed the Las Vegas fire department forced him into a mental health hospital last week and “injected” him with something unknown.
“I was taken in by the Las Vegas fire department last week against my will. First day out but I’m still aligned…. I was injected with I don’t know what.”
According to the New York Post, Jones claimed around 5 to 7 came to his house with an ambulance.
They then administered a shot of a mysterious substance.
They took him to Southern Hills Hospital, even denying him a cell phone.
The Experience Left Chandler Jones Distraught
Chandler Jones added that they transferred him to Seven Hills Behavioral Health Hospital.
Here, the staff allegedly tried to force additional meds on him.
Jones believes that the Las Vegas Police Department had the fire department detain him over a concerning post.
“I hadn’t done anything wrong.”
On his first night, Jones was forced to sleep on the floor as he wasn’t given access to a bed.
He added that his brothers brought him clothes and decent meals, and his father visited to read him “bible verses.”
“I’m still confused on what I did wrong.”
Despite everything he endured, Jones didn’t stop working out to keep himself in shape.

The NFL star apparently worked out in his room daily.
“All I know is whoever put me here had bad intentions. I’m to (sic) strong of a person to be mentally broken. For all of my friends that know me, THEY KNOW!!!”
Chandler Jones finally left the hospital on Monday and immediately blamed the Raiders GM Dave Ziegler in a heated rant.
“I called Raiders GM 6 to 7 times asking for help and wondered if he had put me in here, but he never answered. I even left him voicemails… I was just trying to figure out why I’m not allowed in the building still and why do I have to continue to watch my brothers suffer every Sunday. But no answer.”
Raiders’ head coach Josh McDaniels called Jones’ situation a private matter.
