Zay Jones Family Forking Out $20k for Damages From Bizarre, Bloody Arrest

3/23/2018 10:24 AM PDT

Zay Jones won't face criminal charges for shattering a penthouse window because his family is covering the cost for repairs ... TMZ Sports has learned.

According to the L.A. County District Attorney ... there was no proof the Bills wide receiver acted with malice or wrongful intent. That seems odd, considering the video we got of Jones running naked in the hallway of the downtown L.A. building right before he kicked out the 30th floor window.

However, the D.A. also says the building wasn't looking to press charges ... most likely because Zay's family was extremely cooperative and told the building manager they'd cover the damages. According to docs, obtained by TMZ Sports, that's about $20,000.

We broke the story ... Jones was arrested Monday night for felony vandalism after getting into a naked altercation with his brother, Cayleb Jones of the Minnesota Vikings ... breaking the window and bleeding all over the hallways.

The Bills and the NFL still haven't said if Zay will face any league punishment.

3/22/2018 2:56 PM PDT

Buffalo Bills receiver Zay Jones will NOT be charged with vandalism after the bizarre incident where he got naked, argued with his brother ... and allegedly smashed out a 30th floor window.

The L.A. County D.A. tells TMZ Sports ... there was insufficient evidence to charge Jones. We broke the story ... Jones was arrested and booked Monday night for felony vandalism.

Video of the incident showed him totally naked in the downtown L.A. apartment building ... telling his brother, Cayleb Jones, he was going to "fight for Jesus."

Witnesses said Zay bolted away from his bro, and kicked in a window -- blood was left on the glass and all over the walls and hallways of the building.

Jones was released from custody early Wednesday morning.

The NFL is still investigating the incident, and it's possible he'll face some punishment ... but criminally, he's in the clear.

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Zay Jones got into a bizarre naked struggle with his brother -- who's also in the NFL -- and it ended in a bloody mess ... with Zay in handcuffs.

TMZ Sports obtained this video of the crazy fight that went down Monday night in a downtown L.A. apartment building. Zay is stark raving nude while grappling with his brother -- Cayleb Jones of the Vikings.

You can hear Zay yelling, "I'm going to fight for Jesus" ... and according to witnesses, Cayleb was trying to stop him from jumping out a 30th floor window. 

Zay eventually broke free, and ran in the direction of Cayleb's gf's apartment ... you can hear her screaming. We're told at some point, he ran back out of the apartment, entered a public balcony area and smashed his foot through a window.

Photos from the scene show blood on the shattered window, and all over the floors and walls.

We're told Zay actually tried to squeeze through the hole in the window, but Cayleb restrained him until police arrived, and arrested him for felony vandalism.

Jones was the Bills' 2nd round draft pick last year.

According to law enforcement sources, he's being held in the medical ward of L.A. County Jail. It's unclear what his condition is at this point.

The Bills tell TMZ Sports, "We are still in the process of gathering more information on the matter. At this point, we will have no further comment.”

We've also reached out to the NFL, but no word back yet.

"Yet, despite how we feel, we KNOW that God is a promise maker and keeper."

Ex-NFL Linebacker Murdered By Cocaine Dealers ... Officials Say

2/22/2018 11:04 AM PST
Breaking News

Ex-NFL linebacker Robert Eddins -- who played briefly with the Buffalo Bills -- was shot to death in a basement by 3 drug dealers ... officials say. 

Eddins and another man, Ricardo McFarlin, were murdered in 2016 in an "execution style" shooting at Robert's grandmother's home in Detroit. 

Now, officials have charged 3 men in connection with the killings -- Michael Griffin, Dennis Epps and Mariano Garcia. Officials say all three men were part of a plot to deal more than 5 kilos of cocaine and heroin. 

Prosecutors say the suspects traveled from Alabama to Detroit specifically to kill Eddins -- and in the process, killed the other man as well. 

Cops say both victims were found with gunshots to the head. 

The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration issued a statement on the case ... saying, "The murders of Eddin and McFarlin is just another example of how violence is intertwined with drug trafficking."

Eddins signed with the Bills in 2011 after going undrafted out of Ball State. He also played with Buffalo in 2012 but only appeared in 1 regular season game.

He later went on to play in the Canadian Football League. 

O.J. Simpson Back Rooting for the Bills ... And Guess Where?

1/7/2018 10:50 AM PST

1:28 PM PT -- The Bills lost and are out of the playoffs. Looks like O.J. isn't that much of a good luck charm after all ... whodathunkit?

O.J. Simpson was seen rockin' a Buffalo Bills jersey as his ex-NFL team took on the Jaguars in the playoffs this weekend ... but the Juice isn't loose in Florida. 

A bunch of pics featuring O.J. in the ol' blue and white were posted Sunday, showing the former running back hanging with some fellow fans as the Bills/Jaguars game started.

At first, a lot of people speculated Simpson had left Nevada and was on the ground in Jacksonville, FL -- where the game is being played ... which mighta been a problem considering he's out on parole, and presumably can't leave the state on whim's notice. 

However, upon closer inspection ... we've found that Simpson has not left Nevada. In fact, it appears he's still in Vegas ... having mugged at a local bar called Moon Doggies. There's even a sign in the back that says "Go Rebels" ... which is UNLV's football team name. 

Coast is clear, Jacksonville ... back to the second quarter action.

But if they fall short -- will Marcell and co. be satisfied with ending the team's 10-year playoff drought?

"HELL NAH ... playoffs was expected -- now it's time to make that Big Dance."

Tom Brady hopes he won't have to play without Rob Gronkowski next week ... despite the superstar tight end's controversial late hit on a defenseless Bills player on Sunday.

TB12 spoke with 'Kirk and Callahan' on WEEI Monday morning and addressed the hit on Tre'Davious White -- resulting in a concussion -- saying Gronk lashed out after growing frustrated with unfair calls earlier in the game.

"It's an emotional game and these are like spur of the moment things, they just happen," Brady says.

"You always love to keep your cool all the time but you're in a sport where you're trying to run and block and hit and tackle and be physical and aggressive. That's why people tune in."  

"I think if it was a pillow fight, people wouldn't tune in to watch."

When he was asked whether Gronk deserves to be suspended, Brady defended his teammate ... saying, "I certainly hope not."
