Mar 21, 2018

Zay Jones' father says his son will be fine, and online jail records show the Buffalo Bills receiver has been released two days after being arrested in Los Angeles following a naked, bloody argument with his brother.

Robert Jones posted a note on his Twitter account Wednesday saying Jones "is with me and his mom,'' while adding "he's going to be fine!''

Zay Jones was arrested after officers were called to a disturbance in downtown Los Angeles, said police spokesman Luis Garcia. Jones was found "breaking glass doors and windows'' and arrested on suspicion of felony vandalism, Garcia said.

Prosecutors did not immediately file a case against Jones and have asked police to further investigate the matter, district attorney's office spokesman Paul Eakins said.

The arrest was first reported by TMZ, which posted a video showing a nude Zay Jones pushing his brother, Cayleb, in what appeared to be the hallway of an apartment building. Cayleb Jones, a Minnesota Vikings receiver, on Wednesday also posted a note on his Twitter account, saying "I am my brothers keeper.''

Robert Jones, who lives in Texas, is a former NFL linebacker and won three Super Bowl championships with the Dallas Cowboys during his 10-year career.
