Incognito threw weights before hospitalization

Richie Incognito is a free agent after indicating earlier in the offseason he wanted to retire for health reasons

Former Miami Dolphins offensive lineman Richie Incognito was taken into custody at a South Florida gym Wednesday for an involuntary psychiatric evaluation, police said.

The man said he tried to calm Incognito, but the free-agent National Football League guard allegedly threw a tennis ball at his foot, hit him with a weighted sled and threw two weights at him, both of which missed. The man stated that Incognito was ranting about the government and screamed at him to "get off my f-ing playground".

O'Brien called 911 and in a recording released Thursday a voice identified as Incognito's can be heard in the background yelling and cursing at him.

Incognito reportedly had issues before the St. Louis Rams selected him in the third round of the 2005 draft.

Ireland projected to overturn abortion ban in landslide vote
Currently, if a woman falls pregnant in Ireland it is illegal for her to seek an abortion under the eighth amendment. Ireland's government has vowed to adopt legislation liberalizing abortion protocols in the event of a "Yes" victory.

Officer Brown wrote that when he and Rosenthal arrived at the gym, a staff member handed them Incognito's concealed weapons permit and told them he had thrown objects at the staff.

The man who was attacked by Incognito, named Mark, said they were both working out in the gym's outdoor turf area when he "immediately noticed something was off". When told he could potentially be a danger to others, Incognito asked a woman in the nearby pool to call the Federal Bureau of Investigation, according to the report.

Incognito then explained to the officers that he couldn't tell them about the government's involvement because he was "under contract". He was not arrested but was taken into custody under Florida's Baker Act, which allows for involuntary psychiatric commitment for people seen as a danger to themselves or others. "I hope he gets help", O'Brien said. The Bills put him on the reserve/retired list, and this week they cut him when Incognito said he wanted to play again. Earlier this offseason he agreed to a restructured contract but later fired his agent and abruptly retired, saying health reasons were causing him to step away from the game.

I don't want to speculate too much so hopefully Incognito gets this figured out and either lands on another team, or just decides to enjoy a quiet retirement.
