The ongoing saga regarding the whereabouts of former Auburn running back Tre Mason has taken another turn. A police report from July says that he was admitted to a hospital and was “unable to make decisions for himself.”
Per a police report obtained by ESPN, Mason’s mother placed a call to Palm Beach Sheriff’s office and told them her son was “acting unusual and making irrational statements.”
One of the statements, per the report, was that, “the police were responsible for teaching al-Qaida how to fly planes.”
Police observed that a lamp and vase in the house had been broken and that a hole had been punched in the wall of Mason’s bedroom. Police decided that the former Auburn running back was not “fit to make his own decisions” and was admitted to a hospital for observation.
Mason did not report to the Los Angeles Rams training camp and the franchise has struggled to get in contact with Mason. The police have been to Mason’s house five times in the past four months and the 2014 third round pick was arrested in March on charges of reckless driving, marijuana possession and resisting arrest.
Mason was the 2013 SEC Player of the Year and helped lead the Tigers to a 2013 SEC Championship with over 1,800 yards and 23 touchdowns. Mason has rushed for 972 yards on 254 carries in his first two NFL seasons.
