A police report filed in Florida after former Buffalo Bills offensive lineman Richie Incognito was taken into custody Wednesday said the NFL player showcased a "very erratic" speech pattern and thought the government had him under surveillance.
Andy Slater of WINZ provided a copy of the report Thursday:
TMZ Sports reported Incognito was placed on an involuntary psychiatric hold for an evaluation after an incident at a Florida gym. Another individual at the facility said Incognito threw a tennis ball and dumbbell at him while "rambling about the government."
The 34-year-old New Jersey native endured a bizarre end to his career with the Bills.
He announced his retirement from the NFL in early April. A couple days later, however, he posted a message on Twitter suggesting he was planning to return for offseason workouts:
Incognito never returned to the organization, which released him Monday.
The University of Nebraska product has also played for the St. Louis Rams and Miami Dolphins during a pro career that started in 2005. He's earned four Pro Bowl selections.
Incognito was a central figure in the Dolphins' bullying scandal, which drew national headlines in 2014.
