The post read, "When you're a bully victim & a coward, your options are suicide, or revenge". With almost a month having passed since the day of Martin's Instagram post, it's not apparent or clear why the police have made a decision to issue the warrant.
The warrant stems from a February 23 incident after an Instagram post on his account with a photo of a shotgun and several shells tagged his former high school, the Miami Dolphins and ex-Dolphins teammates Mike Pouncey and Richie Incognito. An arrest warrant had been issued for Martin, relating to an Instagram post showing a shotgun and ammunition.
Team officials with the Dolphins and the Buffalo Bills - Incognito's current team - alerted the National Football League about the Instagram post after becoming aware of it the day after it was published. A few short years ago he was a young National Football League player with a very bright future.
In October 2013, Martin left the Dolphins team facility citing "emotional" reasons, that were soon discovered to be related to a pattern of harassment from some of his teammates, most notably Incognito. Another shotgun was found at his parents' house.
In 2015, Martin wrote on social media he contemplated suicide during his National Football League career and that he didn't fit in during his days at Harvard-Westlake.
