Police took Richie Incognito to mental hospital following freakish gym incident

Share

Former NFL offensive lineman Richie Incognito has been taken into custody for a psychiatric examination after an incident in a gym. "I can't have anybody in Bluetooth capability of me or taking pictures of me", according to the arrest report.

Sources also told TMZ that Incognito had been acting unusual at the gym the previous day, but did not become violent. The victim said there was no reason for Incognito to begin throwing things at him.

As O'Brien called authorities, Incognito can be heard in the background of the 911 call yelling at O'Brien and threatening him.

Brown said that when he told Incognito he was anxious he was going to hurt himself or others, Incognito yelled at a woman in the pool to call the Federal Bureau of Investigation. "When I asked why the government was trying to watch him, Incognito told me I didn't have a high-enough security clearance".

The accusations against Incognito came just two days after he was released by the Buffalo Bills. He would change topics frequently and jump up to move locations without warning. When officers explained their concerns that Incognito could be a danger to others, he "suddenly stood and asked a woman in the swimming pool to call the Federal Bureau of Investigation".

Incognito was taken into custody under the Baker Act, which requires an involuntary mental evaluation. Following the incident, Incognito was sent to involuntary psychiatric care by authorities.

The 34-year-old Incognito announced this year that he was retiring after 11 seasons in the National Football League, the last three with the Bills.

A week later, Incognito posted a series of vague Tweets which eventually led to him announcing his retirement. He said he didn't know Incognito, who also played for the St. Louis Rams and Miami Dolphins, where he was suspended in 2013 for the racial bullying of a teammate, Jonathan Martin. But the Bills released him from their reserved/retired list on Monday, leaving open the possibility he could sign with another team.

Incognito spent four seasons with the Dolphins from 2010-13.

Another positive with Incognito is that with his age, and the fact that he just retired, he won't be able to demand more than a one-year contract which is a good news for the Vikings who are looking to extend Stefon Diggs, Danielle Hunter and Anthony Barr.
