Richie Incognito was accused of sexually harassing a female volunteer at a 2012 golf event, according to a police report.
Local 10 in Florida tracked down a police report filed in May 2012 where a woman accused the Miami Dolphins offensive lineman of simple battery. The report says the victim believes Incognito was influenced by alcohol during the incident.
The woman, then 34, was a volunteer for the “Fins Weekend Golf Tournament” and says Incognito approached her and was acting very inappropriately.
Here’s what she told police:
[The alleged victim] states that Mr. Incognito used his golf club to touch her by rubbing it up against her vagina, then up her stomach then to her chest. He then used the club to knock a pair of sunglasses off the top of her head. After that, he proceeded to lean up against her buttocks with his private parts as if dancing, saying “Let it rain, Let it Rain!” He finally finished his inappropriate behavior by emptying bottled water in her face.
The woman says other people, including event organizers, witnessed the event and did nothing to stop it. She even says a former Dolphins player came up to apologize to her and said the incident would be taken care of. It says in the police report that the woman went to police because she believed nothing was being done about the incident and she wanted an apology.
This report obviously is not related to the bullying accusations Incognito faces, but they are a sign of his character and potential lack of regard for others. Recall that a previous report said Incognito has been reprimanded for his conduct towards team employees. When you put all this together, it only makes Incognito look worse.
