  • NFL bully victim faces 5 charges following Instagram gun┬áthreat

An arrest warrant has been filed for former National Football League offensive lineman Jonathan Martin in Los Angeles on four charges of making criminal threats and one charge of possessing a loaded firearm, TMZ reports.

The post read, "When you're a bully victim & a coward, your options are suicide, or revenge".

According to an online file, the Los Angeles District Attorney's Office has filed five criminal charges against Martin. Furthermore, the report states there is now a warrant issued for Martin's arrest. TMZ first reported on Monday that there's a warrant out for Martin's arrest.

Martin's threat caused his former high school to shut down completely as a result.

It also had the Twitter handles of three people, including former Dolphins guard Richie Incognito and center Mike Pouncey.

The Dolphins suspended Incognito for his alleged role in the incident, and an National Football League investigation led by attorney Ted Wells determined, among other things, that the "harassment by Martin's teammates was a contributing factor in his decision to leave the team".

The post was made on February 23, less than two weeks after 17 people were killed in a shooting at a South Florida high school. Harvard-Westlake closed that day in response to a threat on social media.

On the day of the incident the LAPD told USA Today that Martin had been detained, but was not in police custody. In his possession were an ax, a large knife, and a loaded 12-gauge shotgun.
