Incognito booked for disorderly conduct and criminal threats.
Former NFL lineman Richie Incognito reportedly threatened to shoot the staff of at Messinger Pinnacle Peak Mortuary in Scottsdale, Arizona on Monday, according to Scottsdale police, as arrangements were being made for his father's funeral.
According to reports, Incognito became "upset with staff and began to damage property inside the business and shout at employees," which resulted in an arrest on suspicion of disorderly conduct and criminal threats, both misdemeanor charges. "Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Incognito allegedly created a disturbance by “acting erratically and making the employees feel incredibly uncomfortable” while handling arrangements for his late father," according to Pro Football Talk.
USA Today reports that police said, "At several points during his contact with staff, Incognito threatened to retrieve guns from his vehicle and return to shoot the employees." Multiple guns were later found in Incognito's truck, and the weapons were impounded/
This is the second time Incognito has been in police custody since being released from the Buffalo Bills' retired list in May. Just days after being released, Incognito was held for an involuntary psychiatric evaluation after a disturbance at a Boca Raton, Florida, gym, during which police believed him to be in an "altered, paranoid state." According to ESPN, under Florida's Baker Act, Incognito was not arrested but was taken by Boca Raton police for an involuntary psychiatric commitment for people seen as a danger to themselves or others.
