What you need to know about Chandler Jones' bizarre hospitalization incident
Wednesday January 13th, 2016

The Foxboro police and fire dispatch has released audio from New England Patriots defensive end Chandler Jones’s medical emergency on Sunday.

Jones, who was rushed to the hospital Sunday after he arrived at the Foxboro police department around 7:42 a.m. ET, was seeking help for his disclosed condition and taken to Norwood Hospital nearly 20 minutes later.

In the audio, an officer tells the dispatcher, “I got his keys off the kitchen table, I was able to lock the front door. If you want to just pass along to the fire, he was definitely involved with class D delta before this happened, just so they know.”

While the recording does not specify what “class D delta” means, in Massachusetts law, “class D” refers to instances relating to drugs, including marijuana.

Officials would not clarify what the emergency was, and some information was deleted from the records before being released.

A source told The Boston Globe on Wednesday, however, that Jones simply had a bad reaction to “a substance” he put into his body, and that it was not related to a drug overdose.  

Jones practiced with the Patriots on Monday and Tuesday in preparation for the team’s divisional round matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs on Saturday.
