Laremy Tunsil’s attorney said the Dolphins draftee will press federal charges after his social media accounts were hacked.

The comments were made to the New York Post’s Bart Hubbuch.

Tunsil was the subject of night one of the NFL draft when his Twitter account sent out a video of Tunsil taking a bong hit out of a gas mask. Tunsil slid in the draft after the years-old video was released before Miami selected him with the 13th pick. 

After Tunsil was selected, his Instagram account was hacked as well, sending out photos of apparent conversations between Tunsil and Ole Miss administrators, in which Tunsil asked for money.

Tunsil was not aware of the Instagram hack when answering questions, and admitted in a press conference to accepting money from coaches. 

Tunsil met with the media in Miami on Friday, and declined to address what happened during the draft.
