PFT adds that the incident took place at a Funeral Home in Scottsdale after Incognito allegedly created a disturbance by “acting erratically and making the employees feel incredibly uncomfortable” while handling arrangements for his late father.
Incognito allegedly made a gun gesture toward one of the employees, and he said that he has guns in his truck. Police found weapons in Incognito’s truck and they were impounded.
A few months ago, Incognito was involved in an incident at a gym that resulted in him spending three days in a mental hospital.
Before that, Incognito said was retiring and he publicly fired his agent.
However, he hasn’t completely ruled out the possibility of returning to the NFL at some point and he recently claimed that the Seahawks and Vikings had been in contact with him.
Incognito, 34, is a former third-round pick of the Rams back in 2005. He played three years for the Rams and one year for the Bills before signing on with the Dolphins in 2010.
After four years in Miami, Incognito was released and out of football for a year before securing another shot with the Bills in 2015.
Incognito was in the final year of his three-year, $15.75 million contract that included $5.45 million guaranteed and was set to make a base salary of $6.32 million for the 2018 season when he agreed to the restructured deal. The Bills released him from the retired list earlier this week.
In 2017, Incognito appeared in all 16 games for the Bills and was rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 12 guard out of 77 qualifying players.
