Chandler Jones, a prominent NFL pass rusher for the Las Vegas Raiders, recently shared a series of startling allegations involving his involuntary admission to a mental health hospital and the administration of an unknown substance. The unfolding saga has raised questions and concerns about his well-being and the circumstances surrounding his absence from the football field.

In a series of handwritten notes posted on X (formerly Twitter), Jones revealed that he was taken against his will to a mental health facility by the Las Vegas Fire Department (LVFD). According to his account, he was injected with an unidentified substance during this ordeal.

Jones described the events that unfolded, stating that a group of 5 to 7 individuals, including LVFD personnel, arrived at his residence with an ambulance. Following an encounter at his front door, he alleges that he was injected with the mysterious substance and transported to Southern Hills hospital without access to his cell phone or any means of communication.

Subsequently, Jones claims he was transferred to Seven Hills Behavioral Health Hospital, where he felt pressured to take additional medications and injections. He stressed that he had done nothing wrong and expressed confusion about the circumstances leading to his admission.

Throughout his stay at the mental health facilities, Jones reported adverse conditions, including having to sleep on the floor and being denied a proper bed. He also pointed out that the environment was not conducive to high-profile athletes like himself.

Despite the challenging situation, Jones maintained his dedication to fitness, working out in his room and even down the hallway during late hours. He emphasized his resilience and questioned the intentions of those responsible for his involuntary admission.

Furthermore, Jones made allegations against the Raiders’ General Manager, Dave Ziegler, claiming he had repeatedly sought help but received no response. These developments come as Jones was placed on the non-football illness list last week, rendering him unavailable for play.
