It has been a turbulent week for Richie Incognito, and new developments aren’t making things easier.
While many players have rushed to the defense of the suspended offensive lineman for his racially charged and bullying comments directed at teammate Jonathan Martin, a 2012 police report has revealed that the Miami Dolphins veteran harassed a female golf club volunteer by touching her privates and emptying a bottle in her face.
On Thursday, Miami television station WPLG reported of the incident that took place on May 18, 2012, at the Turnberry Resort & Club, during the annual Fins Weekend Golf Tournament. Incognito allegedly used a golf club to rub a 34-year-old African-American woman’s private parts and then from her stomach to her chest. He also knocked sunglasses off the top of her head with the club, and also emptied a water bottle in her face.
According to the Aventura police report, Incognito had been drinking. The woman claims that others apologized for the incident, including former Dolphin wide receiver Nat Moore, but not Incognito.
The Dolphins have not commented on the incident.
Incognito, 30, has been suspended indefinitely for his harassment of Martin, a 24-year-old biracial player. Incognito’s voicemail message made several inflammatory comments directed at the fellow offensive lineman, who recently checked himself into a hospital for emotional distress.
“Hey, wassaup, you half n----- piece of s---. I saw you on Twitter, you been training 10 weeks. [I want to] s--- in your f------ mouth. [I’m going to] slap your f------ mouth. [I’m going to] slap your real mother across the face [laughter]. F--- you, you’re still a rookie. I’ll kill you,” the voicemail transcript read.
Hall of Fame defensive lineman Warren Sapp told Dan Patrick’s radio show this week that Incognito used the N-word at him during a game.
"One time he kicks me in a game and calls me the ‘N-word,’” Sapp said. "I look at him and I say, 'Oh, you want me to punch you in the mouth so they kick me out the game?'"
TMZ recently posted a video of Incognito using the N-word in a bar.
