Richie Incognito on Ferrari baseball bat attack: 'Just me venting'

This post has been updated. See the note below for details.

It appears the Miami Dolphins' bullying scandal has continued to take a toll on Richie Incognito.

The offensive lineman, who, along with two other teammates, was accused of persistent harassment of ex-teammate Jonathan Martin in an investigation conducted by the NFL, told Scottsdale, Ariz., police Thursday that he was responsible for damaging his Ferrari with a baseball bat.

Incognito told a reporter from KSAZ-TV in Phoenix that he took a bat to his car because "that was just me venting."

“That was my self-expression. That was a piece of art," Incognito said. "The happiest day of my life is when I got that car, and now the second-happiest day is going to be when I donate it to charity.”

While Incognito was strangely vague on which charity would receive his damaged Ferrari, he did open up a little bit about his involvement in Dolphins' hazing scandal.

“When things went down, it was just unfortunate…. We’re all brothers and sisters. I think that we all understand that … it’s just time to move on. Words were said, things were done. But at the end of the day, we’re all brothers and sisters.”

[Updated, 11:49 a.m. PST Feb. 28: The Orlando Sentinel reported that Incognito has checked himself into an Arizona treatment facility, where he will be psychologically evaluated.]
