Richie Incognito arrested before father’s funeral ‘Wants to kill someone

The Arizona police department confirmed that the former Pro Bowler was arrested on Monday for disorderly conduct and making threats. Based on the investigation, Incognito was arrested and held on misdemeanor chargers of Threats and Disorderly Conduct.

United States media reports said Incognito, who on Sunday confirmed on Twitter that his father had died, allegedly threatened staff at the funeral home and damaged property inside the business.

Ben Hoster told The Post in an email that "Incognito reportedly was upset with staff and began to damage property inside the business and shout at employees".

The report also said Incognito's family had told him he wasn't going to be allowed to attend his father's funeral and he had been acting erratically.

According to a 911 call obtained by TMZ, Incognito became furious at the employees of the funeral home and was "out of control" and threatened "to kill someone".

Florio reported that people close to Incognito "have urged him to get the ongoing help he needs to avoid potentially threatening or troubling behavior".
