Report: Richie Incognito told police he smashed his own car with bat
Richie Incognito’s black Ferrari was vandalized with a baseball bat on Wednesday night. TMZ shared some photos of what they said was Incognito’s car with a piece of the bat hanging from the grill and red shirts hanging from the car that supposedly had Incognito’s name on them. According to the Scottsdale Police Department, Incognito says he trashed the car himself.
In a follow-up, TMZ reported that Incognito spoke with police on Thursday morning and told them he vandalized the car in a fit of rage. It is unclear what set him off or if he is telling the truth.
“(The neighbors) provided us with a photo of a damaged car and reported it to belong to Mr. Incognito, and they gave us an address,” Scottsdale Police Sergeant Mark Clark said, via USA Today Sports. “We went out there and checked to see if there was a damaged car there. There was no car and no one answered the door.
“We went out there again this morning and we were able to contact Mr. Incognito and he reported that he damaged his own car and didn’t need any police help or report.”
We have seen videos of Incognito dropping the N-bomb in a shirtless fit of rage, so we know he has a tendency to get pretty wound up. That said, something doesn’t add up. What was up with the shirts that supposedly had Incognito’s name written on them? Did he write his name on a couple of shirts and toss them on his car before going HAM on it? Unless he really is that much of an irrational spaz, a piece of the story is missing.
