Richie Incognito has been at the center of storm that swept through the Miami Dolphins this past season following the departure of then teammate Jonathan Martin and reports of bullying and harassment. Ted Wells, the NFL investigator in the matter, in his report called out Incognito’s hazing and other actions – shining a not so kind light on the offensive lineman.
The unflattering attention and intense scrutiny is taking a toll on the “tornado.” Incognito according to reports checked himself into a psychiatric care unit in Arizona for counseling Thursday evening. Earlier in the day, Incognito told the Scottsdale Police Department that he smashed his own Ferrari with a baseball bat.
“Oh that was that was just me venting, that was self expression, that’s a piece of art,” Incognito told Fox 10 in Arizona. “The happiest day of my life was when I got that car and now the second happiest day will be when I donate it to charity. The Ferrari is a story unto itself, the Ferrari is one entity, but I will tell you this the Ferrari is going to be for sale through my mission which is helping the brotherhood, whatever brotherhood it is.”
Incognito said that, “When things went down it was just unfortunate. Me and my dad, my mom, my brother, Jonathan Martin, the Dolphins, Stephen Ross, you we’re all brothers and sisters I think we all understand that its just time to move on. You know words were said, things were done, but at the end of the day we’re all brothers and sisters and we’re here to lift each other up. We’re here to motivate each other that’s something my dad instilled in me a long time ago he’s from a military background so we have some odd ways of training,” he said.
He is eligible to sign with any NFL team on March 11 when he becomes an unrestricted free agent.
