In the hours before his arrest, Martin posted an alarming message to Instagram resulting in the closing of Harvard-Westlake High School for safety reasons.

In 2013, Martin, while playing for the Dolphins, claimed he was bullied by teammates and eventually left the team. Harvard-Westlake closed that day in response to a threat on social media.

On the day of the incident the LAPD told USA Today that Martin had been detained, but was not in police custody.
