He has a private IG account, but it is verified.

USA Today reports that Harvard-Westlake High School sent an alert to students before school on Friday, telling them the school was closed. We are working closely with law enforcement and will share more information when we are able. Harvard-Westlake closed both of its campuses on Friday as a precautionary.

Incognito and Pouncey were accused of bullying and harassing Martin during his tenure with Miami Dolphins, treatment which eventually prompted Martin to leave the Dolphins abruptly during the middle of the 2013 season.

LAPD responded to the school due to an Instagram post by what police described as "a former student who is now an adult".

Martin was taken into custody on Friday afternoon. It also included hashtags for Harvard-Westlake, where he went to high school, and the Miami Dolphins.

Astros Prospect Forrest Whitley Suspended 50 Games For Drug Violation
Whitley was an outside shot to see time during the season with the Astros, but was tracking as a member of the 2019 rotation. One of baseball's top pitching prospects has received a 50-game suspension.

Martin has largely been out of the public spotlight since retiring in 2015 after a brief stint with the Panthers.

Martin accused Incognito and Pouncey of bullying him in 2013 when they were teammates in Miami, which resulted in an National Football League investigation.

Since the school was mentioned by name, a statement said it chose to close on Friday, "out of an abundance of caution". Incognito was eventually suspended by the Dolphins when a threatening voicemail surfaced, where Incognito called Martin a "half-n****r piece of shit", threatened to slap Martin's mother across the face and even uttered a death threat against Martin. The bullying-related post was published by a person who attended the school more than 10 years ago, police said. Martin eventually left the team and joined the 49ers.

Martin revealed on social media in 2015 that he had attempted suicide several times.

The incident comes on the heels of a series of threats that have sparked police responses at Southern California schools in the days after a gunman killed 17 people at a Parkland, Fla., high school. "It takes away your self-confidence, your self-worth, your sanity".
