Vikings wide receiver Cayleb Jones was involved in an incident with his brother, Buffalo Bills wide receiver Zay Jones, that resulted in Zay being arrested in Los Angeles.

Video obtained by TMZ shows Jones completely naked in a hallway with Cayleb trying to keep him under control. At one point Zay yells, "I'm going to fight for Jesus."

Zay runs past Cayleb in the video, at which point TMZ says he kicked a hole in a window and tried to "squeeze" through before Cayleb restrained him. 

According to the booking record from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, the incident happened just before midnight Sunday and Zay was released at 4:45 a.m. local time Wednesday.

The Vikings have not commented on the situation.

Cayleb spent last season on the Vikings' practice squad. Zay was a rookie with the Bills in 2017 after being selected in the second round of the NFL Draft. 

Warning: the video is disturbing and very bloody.
