LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Las Vegas Raiders defensive end Chandler Jones was arrested Friday morning, according to Clark County Detention records.
Court documents show Jones, 33, is facing two misdemeanor charges for violating a domestic violence Temporary Protection Order. Initially, Jones was scheduled to make an initial appearance Friday afternoon in Las Vegas Justice Court, but that was canceled and he is due in court on Dec. 4.
“I care for all of them. I think we all do. We want the best for all of our players, our former players, etc.,” Las Vegas Raiders Coach Josh McDaniels said in a morning news conference. “There’s not much we can do other than that.”
While jail records showed Jones in custody around 10 a.m., he was released by noon. His bail is set at $15,000.
Jones wrote on social media earlier this week that he was taken to a behavioral health facility against his will, and that every game he misses he loses $1 million.
Court records show he filed a civil suit against LVMPD on Tuesday, but it is sealed.
“I don’t have much to add to any of that. Nothing’s changed on our end in terms of what the status and everything else. He is where he is. I’m not up to speed on everything,” McDaniels said.
Last year Jones signed a contract with the Raiders that includes $34 million guaranteed.
“We have been closely monitoring the matter and have been in constant communication with the Raiders,” NFL Spokesperson Tim Schlittner said.
The Raiders organization released a statement, saying, “The Raiders are hopeful that Chandler Jones receives the care that he needs. 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 has not played any games this season.
