Former NFL offensive lineman Richie Incognito, 35, faces charges after a truly disturbing encounter at a funeral home on August 21st. Police in Scottsdale, a suburb of Phoenix, say he's being held on suspicion of misdemeanor threats and disorderly conduct. What happened exactly? Well, it started with the death of Incognito's father, and it appears Richie reached a boiling point. While making arrangements for his late father, he reportedly threatened to kill the employees.
"At several points during his contact with staff, Incognito threatened to retrieve guns from his vehicle and return to shoot the employees," said Sgt. Ben Hoster, a police spokesman.
This isn't the first unsavory moment featuring Mr. Incognito in the spotlight. As the New York Daily News reminds us, he was suspended by the Dolphins for bullying five years ago, and last May he was arrested for violent behavior in a gym.
