Richie Incognito checked into psychiatric hospital


Miami Dolphins offensive lineman Richie Incognito was checked into a psychiatric hospital on Thursday night.

TMZ reported Incognito is at a psychiatric care unit in Arizona. They report he didn't voluntarily admit himself, rather the Scottsdale Police Department completed a petition to have him admitted.

NFL Network reporter Jeff Darlington also confirmed the news via tweet, writing, "Incognito is currently being treated at a facility in Arizona after what has been some very stressful times for him & those closest to him."

It's been a tumultuous few months for the football player.

Incognito has been under investigation for harassment issues in the locker room, where he is accused of bullying teammate Jonathan Martin. (Via CBS)

Incognito also displayed some worrisome behavior this week.

"This is Incognito's Ferrari. It's pretty banged up there, smashed on the front and sides, turns out he did it himself with a baseball bat." (Via KNXV)

"Oh, that was that was just me venting, that was self-expression, that's a piece of art. The happiest day of my life was when I got that car, and now the second-happiest day will be when I donate it to charity." (Via KSAZ)

TMZ also reported Incognito will stay at the psychiatric care unit until he goes to a hospital for a mental health evaluation.
