NFL Star Chandler Jones allegedly forced into a mental hospital

NFL player Chandler Jones has claimed that Las Vegas firefighters “injected” him with a mystery substance and forced him into a mental health hospital.

Mr Jones, who plays for the Las Vegas Raiders, says that “a group of 5 to 7” came to his house with an ambulance, gave him a mystery shot and took him to Southern Hills Hospital.

“I was taken in by the Las Vegas fire department last week against my will,” Mr Jones wrote in handwritten notes that he posted on X, the social media platform formally known as Twitter.

“I was injected with I don’t know what,” Mr Jones wrote, along with a caption that stated, “First day out but I’m still aligned.”

Mr Jones wrote that the fire department officials who showed up at his home told him that he had been placed on a “court hold” by the Las Vegas Police Department.

“I haven’t done anything wrong. The police said people were concerned about me because of my posts online,” he wrote.
