Former NFL Star Arrested. The Details Are Extremely Bizarre

David Hookstead | Reporter

Former NFL star Richie Incognito was arrested Monday at an Arizona funeral home following the death of his father.

TMZ reported the following Tuesday:

We’re told … the 35-year-old offensive lineman was talking with staffers at the funeral home when he suddenly exploded and began yelling at various people.

Cops were called to the scene to respond to an “out of control” Incognito. He was ultimately arrested for disorderly conduct and taken to a nearby station where he was booked and posed for a mug shot.

The former Buffalo Bills star just can’t stay out of trouble, and it’s actually pretty sad. He’s just had so many bumps along the way in the past few years. Back in May, he was detained for a mental evaluation after a meltdown at a Florida gym. Like I said, he has really struggled to stay out of trouble recently.

It’s always a shame to watch a successful guy’s life turn to shambles, and I’m afraid that’s exactly what we’re seeing here with Incognito late. You just never know what’s going to happen when a guy stops playing football. It can sometimes be downright tragic. I think that’s exactly what we’re seeing here. I’m not sure it gets more tragic than getting arrested at a funeral home.

I don’t know what the future holds for Incognito, but I sure do hope he gets his life turned around. You just hate to see something like this happen.
