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. 

More to come when it becomes available.
