Former Raiders defensive Chandler Jones was arrested again Tuesday, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. He has been apprehended twice in less than three weeks.

The 33-year-old was reportedly taken in at around 1:15 p.m. on a charge of violating a domestic violence temporary protection order. The details of his arrest are unclear.

Jones was reportedly arrested and taken to the Clark County Detention Center on two counts of the same charge on Sept. 29.

Details of that incident were not immediately available but were disclosed in the Review-Journal's Wednesday report. Jones was reportedly served the protection order by the mother of his son. He allegedly violated it by visiting her home on Sept. 28, getting naked in his own backyard while burning items from her backyard.

When confronted by police, he reportedly admitted sending to the woman, via Snapchat, photos and videos of himself taking the items. Those items included a recycling bin, pool net and dog toys, per the report.

He was released the same afternoon after posting a $15,000 bail bond. The Raiders released him the next day.

Las Vegas' move came after a series of incidents surrounding Jones. He had been away from the Raiders all season and was placed on the non-football illness list earlier in September. Jones began posting expletive-laden videos on social media on Sept. 5, including one that said he was done playing for the team.

On Sept. 8, Jones posted that the Raiders sent a crisis response team to his home after alleging he was taken to a hospital “against my will.”
