(Newser) – A fight between brothers isn't all that uncommon. But you don't often see one arrested for felony vandalism, especially when the brothers are players for two different NFL teams. TMZ has video of the "bizarre naked struggle" Monday night between 22-year-old Buffalo Bills receiver Zay Jones and his older brother, 25-year-old Cayleb Jones, a receiver for the Minnesota Vikings. The skirmish went down in a Los Angeles apartment building, where the party who was naked—Zay Jones—can be heard in the video yelling, "I'm going to fight for Jesus" before briefly scuffling with Cayleb in a hallway, then running out of the frame as a woman in the background screams; TMZ identifies her as Cayleb's girlfriend and says it was her apartment they were near.

Witnesses tell TMZ Zay Jones eventually made his way onto a public balcony on the 30th floor and smashed his foot through a window, with Cayleb having to restrain him from leaping out of the hole. In the video, the aftermath can be seen, with the walls and carpet in the vicinity splattered with blood and a woman in the background saying it looks like a "f---ing murder scene." An LAPD rep confirms to the Buffalo News that a man identified later as "Isaiah Jones" (Zay Jones' official name) had smashed "doors and windows" at the building, and that they brought him into custody close to midnight. Per ESPN, Jones was arrested on suspicion of felony vandalism and had his bail set at $20,000; he has a court date of April 11. In a statement, the Bills noted they'd been informed of the situation and are "still in the process of gathering more information." Jones was released from custody early Wednesday.
