The photo on his private but verified Instagram account had the caption "When you're a bully victim & a coward, your options are suicide or revenge".

Los Angeles Police Department spokesman Josh Rubenstein confirmed to ESPN that the DA had filed charges and said police were communicating with Martin's attorney.

Martin triggered an investigation into the Dolphins' locker-room culture in 2013 after he publicly accused some of his teammates, mainly Incognito and Pouncey, of harassing him and mocking his background.

Others on social media regarded the portrait as an appropriate likeness of somebody who routinely lies from the podium. Rather, he described the image as "a so-called Christian whose only objective in life is to lie for the wicked".

TMZ first reported the charges against Martin.

The South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported that Martin checked into a mental facility on the day of the Instagram post, where he was detained.

The charges stem from a threatening post on Martin's Instagram that surfaced February 22.
