The reasons behind Chandler Jones’ arrest are becoming more clear.
According to multiple reports, the former Raiders star allegedly violated a temporary domestic violence protection order on Sept. 28 after he took items from an unnamed woman’s home and then sent her videos of himself — appearing to be naked — burning the things he took.
The protection order stemmed from a Sept. 12 incident in which Jones, who was “rambling incoherently,” came to her home with a flashlight and without shoes on, The Athletic reported.
The woman, who identified Jones as her ex-boyfriend, told authorities that Jones eventually tried to get into her room, and as she stopped her, he pushed her into a railing, according to the outlet.
She reported the domestic violence, but when police contacted Jones, he denied it.
A protection order was granted, which lasted from Sept. 14-Dec. 13, The Athletic reported.
On Sept. 28, Jones started sending the woman, who said she was the mother of Jones’ child, messages on Snapchat starting in the morning and continuing through the day, KNTV reported.
According to the outlet, at 2:31 p.m. that day, the woman said she saw Jones on her home security system come back and then take items from her backyard, including a recycling bin, pool net and dog toys.
After he left, the woman said Jones began sending her videos of himself lighting the stuff on fire.
“[He] was completely nude inside of his own backyard and was burning items that he took from the victim’s backyard,” the police report read, KLAS reported.
Jones was arrested on the following day, and on Sept. 30, the Raiders officially cut ties with the defensive end when he was officially released.
“The Raiders are hopeful that Chandler Jones receives the care that he needs,” the team said in a statement the day before his release. “He, his family, and all those involved are in our thoughts. As this is now a legal matter, we will not be providing further comment.”
Jones, who played on the non-football injury/illness list on Sept. 20, had a bizarre string of social media posts in September that targeted various people in the Raiders organization.
Over Labor Day weekend, he claimed head Josh McDaniels and general manager Dave Ziegler were keeping him away from the Raiders’ facility.
In a livestream on Sept. 28, Jones baselessly implicated McDaniels in the death of ex-New England teammate Aaron Hernandez, who took his own life in prison on April 19, 2017.
Jones was inactive for the first three weeks of the season before the team officially parted ways with him.
He is next expected in court on Dec. 4.
