Police took Richie Incognito to mental hospital following freaky gym incident

Police took Richie Incognito to mental hospital following freaky gym incident

Former Buffalo Bills offensive lineman Richie Incognito was being held for an involuntary psychiatric evaluation Wednesday after an altercation at a Florida gym, Boca Raton police said.

The man Incognito got into a disagreement spoke with TMZ and said Incognito first threw a tennis ball at him before throwing a dumbbell at him. The man stated that Incognito was ranting about the government and screamed at him to "get off my f-ing playground".

O'Brien called 911 and in a recording released Thursday a voice identified as Incognito's can be heard in the background yelling and cursing at him.

At last check, Incognito was still undergoing an exam.

After investigation, Boca Raton police determined Incognito was in an "altered, paranoid state" when they were called to the upscale gym Wednesday morning.

No gun was found on Incognito, but after he explained to police that he was under contract for the National Security Agency and felt he was being watched by a patron wearing headphones, police took him in for observation. "I don't know the whole story, but wish him the best and hope he gets everything figured out".

Oil Declines After Unexpected Increase in US Crude, Gasoline Stockpiles
The XAUUSD pair however rebound from Tuesday's loss during Asian market hours and is now trading around $1294/95 price range. Brent crude futures were down 75 cents at $78.82 a barrel by 0940 GMT, while US crude CLc1 fell 46 cents to $71.74 a barrel.

"He attacked me. He's not well", the person who called 911 said.

Brown and Rosenthal took Incognito into custody under Florida's Baker Act, which allows for people to be hospitalized for 72 hours if they are deemed a danger to themselves or others.

Incognito was previously placed on an involuntary psychiatric hold in 2014 after smashing his vehicle with a baseball bat.

In his 11 seasons in the NFL, Incognito has played with three NFL teams including two stints with the Bills.

Another positive with Incognito is that with his age, and the fact that he just retired, he won't be able to demand more than a one-year contract which is a good news for the Vikings who are looking to extend Stefon Diggs, Danielle Hunter and Anthony Barr. But the Bills released him from their reserved/retired list on Monday, leaving open the possibility he could sign with another team.

Richie Incognito is a free agent, after indicating earlier in the offseason he wanted to retire for health reasons.
