Redmond, Wash. - Seattle Seahawks safety and Norfolk native Kam Chancellor is venting on social media after two gym employees called the police on him Wednesday night.

Chancellor said the incident happened at Redmond Athletic Club, which went out of business Monday after losing its lease, according to Q13 Fox.

Redmond Police confirmed what happened. The police department issued this statement:

"On March 2nd, 2016 at 4:25pm, Redmond Police Dispatch received a 911 call from a local gym.  Two female employees were inside the closed facility alone and reported that five adults were outside their facility, some were pounding on the door and looking in the windows with cameras, as if they were trying to gain entry.  The employees reported they weren't exactly sure what was going on, but the individuals did not appear to be leaving, even though the gym was closed for business.

"Redmond Officers responded and made contact with five adults, who expressed they had an interest in purchasing the gym and were trying to make contact with someone inside the facility. Our interactions with the group were very positive, the group left the area without incident and no police report was filed."
