The Foxboro Police Department released a report on the case of Patriots defensive end Chandler Jones, adding layers of details to what was already a strange scene.
According to the report published by the Boston Globe, a shirtless Jones walked to a back door of the town’s police station, and knelt down on the ground in a pose suggesting he was surrendering and then praying before asking police for help. He was later hospitalized overnight, and reports say it was because of synthetic marijuana.
But the report just released indicated that his home smelled of “burnt marijuana.”
The report by Officer David Foscaldo said “it was evident the individual was looking for help and assistance,” saying “‘I’m Chandler Jones …’ and he kept telling us he had ‘been told’ to come to our police station.”
There was no indication whom he was told that by, and that passage was followed by several redacted sentences.
The report concluded this was a call for medical assistance as opposed to a crime.
The Patriots have kept the case at arm’s length, with coach Bill Belichick saying little beyond that his concern was for his player’s health and safety.
Jones was described as being polite and cooperative, though the report clearly paints the picture of someone not in full command of his faculties.
