(WKBW) - Just two days after the Buffalo Bills released him, offensive lineman Richie Incognito is in the news once again -- but this time, not for football.
7ABC has learned from the Boca Raton police department that Incognito, 34, had the police called on him for a disturbance at a fitness center in Boca Raton, FL. According to the police, Incognito was not arrested, but was put under the provisions of the Baker Act -- which means he is under involuntary mental evaluation.
The original TMZ report says the alleged victim claimed that Incognito threw a dumbbell at him, and other details leading up to the alleged incident.
In the buildup to the draft, Incognito took a restructured contract with the Bills, publicly fired his agent on Twitter after that deal was signed, and retired shortly after that. The Bills officially added him to the reserve/retired list on April 12.
Once Organized Team Activities started around the league, Incognito -- according to ESPN -- wanted to make a return to the NFL, despite retiring from the league and team just one month prior. The Bills granted his reported wish, releasing him off the reserve/retired list on Monday.
The move officially made Incognito an unrestricted free agent, able to be signed by any other team. Incognito played in Buffalo for three seasons.
