Richie Incognito smashes own car with a bat
Police checking on reported damage to a car belonging to Richie Incognito, the player at the center of the Miami Dolphins’ bullying scandal, say Incognito told an officer he did the damage himself.
Sgt. Mark Clark of the Scottsdale, Ariz., police said the Dolphins guard took responsibility when police contacted him Thursday. The Arizona Republic reported that Incognito smashed the black Ferrari with a baseball bat.
Clark said police first went to Incognito’s home Wednesday after being contacted by TMZ Sports and being given a photo of a Ferrari with several dents in its hood.
Clark said further details are unavailable because no report was filed because no crime was reported. He said Scottsdale police are done with the matter.
An investigation conducted for the NFL determined that Incognito and two other offensive linemen engaged in persistent harassment of tackle Jonathan Martin, another offensive lineman and an assistant trainer.
The Baltimore Ravens terminated the contracts of three-time Pro Bowl fullback Vonta Leach and six-year linebacker Jameel McClain.
Leach and McClain were part of the Super Bowl champions two seasons ago.
The Washington Redskins re-signed defensive lineman Chris Baker to a three-year contract worth $12 million.
The deal announced Thursday includes $4 million of guaranteed money.
Baker has spent two seasons with the Redskins, playing in 29 games. He started the final three games last season after Stephen Bowen was sidelined by a knee injury.
