Former Miami Dolphins offensive lineman Jonathan Martin has been detained for questioning in Los Angeles as a result of a threatening image posted on social media, according to reports.

"The individual we believe responsible for the social media post in question has been detained and our investigation is ongoing," the Los Angeles Police Department said in a statement.

The image on the Instagram account said: "When you're a bully victim & a coward, your options are suicide, or revenge." The image showed a shotgun, ammunition and tagged four accounts, including those belonging to former Miami teammates Richie Incognito and Mike Pouncey. It also included hashtags for Harvard-Westlake, where he went to high school, and the Miami Dolphins.

I really don't see any real hint of a threat in Martin's post, unlike hundreds of "Kill Trump" (or if you're a Baltimore news reader, "Kill Republican President Trump") posts like above that permeate social media.  I suppose some have been addressed, but I don't really know because I don't remember seeing any reports of arrest and incarceration they would demand.  Just sayin'.
