Ex-NFL lineman Richie Incognito tells Scottsdale police he took bat to own sports car
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Police checking on reported damage to a car belonging to Richie Incognito, the player at the center of the Miami Dolphins' bullying scandal, said Incognito told an officer he did the damage himself.
Sgt. Mark Clark said the former Dolphins guard took responsibility when police contacted him Thursday.
He said police first went to Incognito's home Wednesday after being contacted by TMZ Sports and being given a photo of a black Ferrari with several dents in its hood.
Clark said further details are unavailable because no report was filed because no crime was reported. He said Scottsdale police are done with the matter.
An investigation conducted for the NFL determined Incognito and two other offensive linemen engaged in persistent harassment of tackle Jonathan Martin, another offensive lineman and an assistant trainer.
