Free agent offensive guard Richie Incognito, who parted ways with the Buffalo Bills amid a contract dispute this year, was arrested Monday on charges of disorderly conduct and threats. Incognito allegedly acted erratically and made references to guns in his car while at a funeral home, according to Mike Florio at Pro Football Talk.
Incognito was there, unfortunately, because his father passed away over the weekend. He was making funeral arrangements when he broke down and started threatening the employees at the business, according to reports. The lineman has a history of erratic behavior and anger management concerns, and despite signing onto the “Boo2Bullying” campaign as an anti-bullying ambassador in the offseason, he’s been struggling without the structure of the football season, being held for a psychiatric evaluation in May after an outburst at a Florida gym.
Update: The Scottsdale, AZ police department released a statement concerning Incognito’s arrest.

We’re sending our thoughts to Incognito as he deals with the devastating loss of his father and hope he is able to find the help he needs to work through his post-NFL life.
