An unknown vandal used a baseball bat to cause extensive damage to former Miami Dolphins lineman Richie Incognito’s Ferrari.
The incident reportedly occurred on Wednesday in front of Incognito’s Scottsdale, Ariz., home, TMZ Sports reports. The website obtained several photos of the damage caused by the baseball bat, which can be viewed here.
Sources familiar with the situation allege that Incognito’s neighbors were the first to notice the damage to his Ferrari, TMZ Sports reports. The car is purported to cost $300,000.
Images of the attack’s aftermath reveal that the vandal left the baseball bat next to Incognito’s damaged Ferrari. A piece of the bat is lodged in the car’s grill, while its hood sustained several dents.
The assailant also scattered several red T-shirts around the Ferrari. According to TMZ Sports, the shirts had Incognito’s name written on them.
Local police officials have yet to comment on the situation. The identity of the vandal is not yet known, and it’s unclear if Incognito was home at the time of the incident.
Incognito was the subject of intense public criticism for his role in the bullying of Dolphins teammate Jonathan Martin. When the situation came to light, the 30-year-old was suspended for the final eight games of the 2013 NFL season.
In February, a report by private investigator Ted Wells determined that Incognito and other teammates bullied Martin and several other individuals within the Dolphins organization, the New York Daily News notes. According to the report, Incognito regularly mocked Martin with an array of derogatory remarks about the 24-year-old and his family.
