Former Buffalo Bills offensive lineman Richie Incognito was arrested. This was for the second time this offseason. According to a spokesperson for the Scottsdale, Arizona, police department. Incognito faces misdemeanor charges of disorderly conduct and making threats.
According to the report. The police were called to Messinger Pinnacle Peak Mortuary. Where Incognito was making arrangements for his father’s funeral.
“Incognito reportedly was upset with staff. Also, he began to damage property inside the business and shout at employees. At several points during his contact with staff. Incognito threatened to retrieve guns from his vehicle and return to shoot the employees,” the police said.
Incognito had posted about his father’s death on social media on Saturday.
“08/18/18 I regret to inform you that my father ARMY AIRBORNE RANGER RICHARD DOMINICK DEJASA HAS PASSED 😢 Keep “my family” in your prayers,” Incognito wrote.
Richie Incognito, who was released by the Bills during the offseason. Was taken into police custody two days after his release due to a disturbance at a Boca Raton, Florida, gym. During which police believed Incognito to be in an “altered, paranoid state.” According to the incident report, Incognito threw items at gym employees and patrons. Also, he “believed ordinary citizens were government officials that were tracking and recording him.”
Because of Florida’s Baker Act, Incognito was not arrested for the incident. He was instead taken for an involuntary psychiatric commitment. This is for people seen as a danger to themselves or others.
A few days after returning home from the psychiatric commitment, Incognito reporters he was training to make a comeback this season. After initially announcing his retirement during the offseason. Earlier this month, Incognito said he had received interest from Minnesota Vikings. Also, Seattle Seahawks, which Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer said was “totally false.”
Incognito went on a social media tirade after Zimmer denied the Vikings were interested in bringing him in. Calling Zimmer a liar. He would later apologize for the tweet.
In conclusion with Richie Incognito turning 35 last month and his history of erratic off-field behavior, it is very likely he has played his last down in the NFL.
