Richie Incognito undergoing involuntary medical evaluation after reported fight at gym

Former Miami Dolphins offensive lineman Richie Incognito was taken into custody at a South Florida gym Wednesday for an involuntary psychiatric evaluation, police said. He said in April he was retiring and told a reporter his kidneys and liver were failing.

Incognito was granted his release by the Bills earlier this week.

According to police, Incognito believed government officials were tracking and recording him.

Richie Incognito allegedly threw a dumbbell at someone in a Florida gym.

"He started yelling at me like he was going to kick my ass and beat the [expletive] out of the equipment over here", O'Brien said in the 911 call regarding the incident obtained by the Herald.

Officers said when they tried to tell Incognito they were concerned he would hurt someone or himself; he asked a woman at the gym to call the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Mark, who did not recognize Incognito at the time, said he had "seemed upset" and was only doing each workout for five to six seconds.

No arrest was made because investigators could not prove that Incognito had intentions of hurting anyone despite throwing both the tennis ball and weight.

National Football League fans know Incognito well by now, and probably not because he made the Pro Bowl each of the past three seasons with the Bills.

I have criticized Incognito repeatedly in the past, but I truly hope he gets the help he needs.

And when he said he wanted to come back, the Buffalo Bills released Incognito from the reserve/retired list making the 34 year old a free agent.

The Bills also asked Incognito to take a pay cut in restructuring the final year of his contract.

He, however, had a change of heart weeks later when Incognito abruptly fired agent David Dunn in a post on Twitter.

I don't want to speculate too much so hopefully Incognito gets this figured out and either lands on another team, or just decides to enjoy a quiet retirement.

But Incognito, who was involved in a bullying scandal while with the Miami Dolphins in 2014, is not doing himself any favors in regard to finding a new employer.
