Isaiah “Zay” Jones, the Buffalo Bills wide receiver who earlier this week was arrested for felony vandalism, won’t be charged.
Los Angeles prosecutors on Thursday, March 22 declined to bring charges against the 22-year-old after he was seen on video earlier this week grappling with his brother in the nude before racing down an apartment building hallway, the Associated Press reported.
CBS Sports reported prosecutors cited “insufficient evidence” as their reasoning, which came after Jones was arrested and taken to USC Medical Center for his injuries and released Wednesday morning.
The aftermath of the graphic footage showed a bloody hallway from where TMZ reported Jones broke a patio window and allegedly tried to jump from the 30-foot floor. It resulted in $20,000 in damages but Jones’ family has footed the bill. Thanks to their cooperation, the building isn’t pressing charges.
Jones’ older brother, Minnesota Vikings receiver Cayleb Jones, is reportedly responsible for saving his brother’s life. Following the incident, he tweeted, “I am my brother’s keeper.”
I am my brothers keeper.

The brothers’ father, Robert Jones, also shared an update about the Bills star, thanking the public for their well-wishes and noting his son is “gonna be fine!”
Thank you for your prayers everyone 🙏🏽! Zay is with me and his mom! He’s gonna be fine! We love y’all!

However, the Bills player may still face discipline from the NFL following the incident. The team released a statement Wednesday saying that they were “in the process of gathering more information on the matter.”
