Richie Incognito reportedly placed on psychiatric hold

Incognito, 34, was removed from the upscale Life Time Gym in Boca Raton, Florida on Wednesday morning following the altercation. Incognito had previously retired from the National Football League through a series of unusual tweets, citing health concerns as the main reason for his departure from the game. However, officers said the man who was hit by the sled did have a bruise.

Mark, who did not recognize Incognito at the time, said he had "seemed upset" and was only doing each workout for five to six seconds. "Then he started throwing *****", the caller told dispatchers.

'I was just like, "this isn't right"'.

At last check, Incognito was still undergoing an exam.

Richie Incognito was taken to a mental health facility in Boca Raton, Fla. on Wednesday following an incident at a gym.

A man called 911, claiming Incognito attacked him. Are you with the f*****g government?', he recalled.

Incognito then explained to the officers that he couldn't tell them about the government's involvement because he was "under contract".

When police approached Incognito, he told them he was training when he felt like he was being watched. "I can't have anybody in blue tooth capability or taking pictures of me".

The report goes on to note that Incognito's speech pattern "was very erratic and he would suddenly change the subject matter to something different". Incognito also asked a woman in the pool to call the Federal Bureau of Investigation after the officers expressed their concerns with Incognito's behavior, according to the report. "I hope he gets help", O'Brien said. He could have done serious damage to me physically, he did not, so I'm blessed. This is clearly not a normal situation and given the fact he was placed under mental evaluation, something is going on beyond just him being a bit aggressive. Incognito was acting angry while working out.

Officers took Incognito into custody under the Baker Act, which allows for involuntary psychiatric commitment for people seen as a danger to themselves or others. He had previously restructured his contract with the team before announcing his retirement. Disturbing details have now emerged about the incident in question that shed light on why he was committed for psychiatric evaluation.

Incognito spent four seasons with the Dolphins from 2010-13. Once OTAs started, however, Incognito reportedly expressed a desire to play again and asked to be released so he could sign with another team.
