VIDEO: NFL player Tre Mason arrested in July ATV incident


NFL player and former Park Vista High School football star Tre Mason was arrested Tuesday night for reportedly fleeing on an ATV from a deputy in July, records show.

Mason was in a park at about 3 p.m. July 27 doing wheelies on an ATV, driving carelessly and “tearing the place up” on roads west of Boynton Beach, deputies said. When a deputy tried to stop him, Mason allegedly sped past.

Mason wasn’t wearing a helmet or protective eye gear, a deputy noted.

Mason drove out of the park near the intersection of Hypoluxo Road and Hagen Ranch Road and went east on Charleston Shores Boulevard. Mason turned left onto Spinnaker Bay Drive and pulled into the driveway of his mother’s Lake Charleston home, records show.

Dash-camera footage shows Mason quickly walk into the home.

Probable cause for Mason’s arrest was filed at the end of August, records show, and a warrant for his arrest was issued Dec. 15. He was picked up Tuesday night by the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office.

Mason was “admitted for evaluation” in July due to erratic behavior. His mother called Palm Beach County sheriff’s deputies July 23 to her Lake Charleston home, west of the city, because her son was acting unusually and making irrational decisions.

Mason told deputies “he was going to call the White House and (and that the deputies) were all going to lose (their) jobs,” records show.

Following the ATV chase, Mason’s mother told deputies her son has a “10-year-old’s mindset” due to head injuries sustained from football injuries. “Tre is not himself at all,” Tina Mason said on audio recorded from a PBSO dashboard-camera video. “He’s not making good decisions.”

Mason is facing a charge of fleeing and eluding without regard for others’ safety. He spent less than an hour in the county jail on that charge before he was released on a $5,000 bond.

Questions surfaced this summer about Mason, who was a no-show for Los Angeles Rams training camp.

Fox Sports reported that head coach Jeff Fisher said: “I haven’t personally spoken with Tre since the season ended. I tried numerous times to reach him. Tre has made a decision not to communicate with us, not to talk.”

Mason didn’t play during the 2016 season.
