Richie Incognito has agreed to a plea deal in the case involving an incident at a funeral home in August 2018, according to TMZ Sports.
The ex-Bills offensive lineman was arrested at a funeral home following the death of his father. He became enraged and caused a scene by “acting erratically and making the employees feel incredibly uncomfortable.” He reportedly made a gun gesture and said he had weapons in his vehicle.
Police who responded to the scene reportedly found and seized weapons from his truck.
The deal requires Incognito to serve an 11-month long probation and a 90-day suspended jail sentence providing he completes a mental health evaluation, the report says.
Incognito also must pay fines, restrain from having firearms and stay away from the mortuary the incident took place while he is on probation, according to the report.
This isn’t the first time Incognito has been at the center of controversy, as he was involved in a bullying scandal as a member of the Dolphins in 2013. He later received an eight-game suspension for engaging in a “pattern of harassment” against teammate Jonathan Martin, who was Miami’s center at the time.
Incognito, 35, is four-time Pro Bowl player. He announced in April 2018 he was retiring, but the following month asked the Bills to release him so he could try to find work with a different team.
However, he could be hard-pressed to find another opportunity.
