A bizarre fight with his brother landed Bills receiver Zay Jones under arrest for felony vandalism, TMZ Sports reports.

TMZ posted footage of a naked Jones struggling with his brother, Vikings receiver Cayleb Jones, at a Los Angeles apartment building. Zay yells, “I’m going to fight for Jesus,” with witnesses saying Cayleb was attempting to stop Zay from jumping out a 30th floor window.

Zay broke free, according to TMZ, and entered a public balcony area, where he smashed his foot through a window. Photos showed blood on the floors and windows.

Zay was being held in the medical ward of the L.A. County Jail, TMZ reports.

The Bills released a statement to the Buffalo News: “We are aware of the incident involving Zay Jones. We are still in the process of gathering more information on the matter. At this point, we will have no further comment.”

  1. “Zay was being held in the medical ward of the L.A. County Jail, TMZ reports.”

    First and foremost I hope this young man gets the help he needs. Doesn’t look good. Secondly Bean time to cut bait, don’t need these types of headaches at OBD.

  2. Wow. Speechless almost… I was looking for Zay Jones to make a leap this year. Leaping off a balcony wasn’t what I had in mind.

  3. This is not exactly how to conduct yourself as an NFL
    player. I think your value in any future free agent opportunity
    could be devalued at this time. Perhaps you will get a hold
    of your conduct and maximize the small window, elite
    athletes in football have.

  4. That is one way to “one-up” the Bills Mafia’s pregame rituals on Sunday! But in all seriousness I hope he gets the help he needs! He didn’t have a great rookie year and I was looking forward to seeing if he could rebound this year…looks like that might not happen now.

  5. Hmmm… Darius arrested running through a field with no pants last year and now this. There’s no way drugs were not involved and he seemed pretty clean cut. Hopefully things work out for Zay.

  6. Wow, That video is nuts. dude is on something special clearly.
    That’s like Chandler Jones naked at the police station type stuff.

    Good luck Bills, go easy on him

  7. Another fake marijuana victim. If you’re rich and in California, why don’t you just get one of those cards like the rest of the weedheads out there instead of putting your life in jeopardy messing with that mess.

  8. Whats the point of the arrest? Hes either nuts or on drugs….he didnt hurt anyone but himself. He’s not a criminal, he needs help. What is wrong with this country? I was a cop for over 20 years….these modern cops need to chill with the petty stuff and remember that their primary purpose is to protect and serve…not arrest.

  9. Everybody crying for this guy, saying they feel bad and hopefully he gets help. But, as an adult, he should be held responsible for his actions. This guy will get everything he deserves.

  10. He was EDP’d. That’s police jargon for handling an Emotionally disturbed person. But someone pressed charges for the window (they could have just billed him, no pun intended. The level of felony arrest (which is a must arrest in the USA, no choice) needs to be adjusted with inflation. It was 1K in 1965 and is still something in that range. The window probably cost $100 in 1965. Now it probably cost 3 grand. If you kick a fender, that’s a felony if the dent is sizeable and the paint comes off. It’s an antiquated dollar amount.

    Back to Jay: He will pay for the window, charges will be dropped (no police commander likes to see felonies in their inbox) and he will be forced to seek the treatment he needs. Whether it was alcohol, drugs or just something wrong with him or a whatever. Hoping for the best but most of the time, we never see these guys again until the demon within appears again. Which is sad, talented or everyday Joe.

  11. just not right at Any Level…who cares if he’s an Athlete..as a person…he Needs Help !!!!

  12. Something is up here. If you actually watch the video, which 90% won’t, you’ll hear his brother say “let’s go talk to dad” or similar a few times. His brother was completely calm and Zay was losing his mind. He’s clearly hard on himself, as demonstrated after the Carolina game, maybe just to much and had a break? I know people will say drugs, but no drug makes you do that unless you don’t do drugs, ever, at least the “normal” kind. Kid needs help. I’d hope Buffalo DOES NOT cut bait on him and hopefully get him the help he needs, he is still a kid after all, and it’s not like we saw this coming… like OBJ

  13. Forget “fighting for Jesus”. Sounds like he’s going to be “fighting to reduce the suspension” once they determine what he took that made him think he could fly and the NFL gets the report.Sounds like he was dropping something other than passes. Sad.

  14. We have absolutely zero clue what the catalyst for this was but we do know it was surely traumatic for two young men and the young woman. Thank God no one was hurt more. Football is irrelevant. I pray he finds peace and health, no doubt he deserves it

  15. Titus Young anyone? Not to make light of the situation, but wasn’t Titus in a series of incidents similar to this? Might be some sort of psychosis/schizophrenia and some chemistry involved here too as well.

  16. I’ve seen someone goes nuts on drugs. Attacked his wife. Was completely psychotic. I don’t even know who this person is anymore with how he behaves. This isn’t a mental illness sadly. This is classic reaction to bad drugs. I hope they force him to get clean and sober for his sake and everyone in his life. He and his brother clearly are hanging with the wrong people too.

    This wasn’t vandalism.
    It was attempted suicide, people shouldn’t ridicule this guy until we learn the facts.

    –We also shouldn’t declare this an attempted suicide until we learn the facts. Like a toxicology report for instance.

    You’re supposed to protect and serve the public FROM guys like this, not protect and serve these guys.

  19. Buffalo is, no doubt, thrilled with the fight of this dog…so there’s that…which is nice.

  20. Smashing his foot through a window…..Viking Cayleb Jones with him…. I have a sneaking suspicion that Taylor Heinicke was a bad influence on someone…
