Report: Richie Incognito Receiving Counseling in Arizona
(NEW YORK) -- Former Miami Dolphins lineman Richie Incognito is undergoing treatment at a psychiatric care unit in Arizona after checking into the facility late Thursday, according to ESPN.
Incognito is said to be seeking help for stress. He is best known as the player at the center of the Miami Dolphins' bullying scandal.
An investigation conducted by Ted Wells for the NFL determined that Incognito and two teammates engaged in harassment of fellow offensive tackle Jonathan Martin, as well as another offensive lineman and an assistant team trainer.
He also made news earlier in the week when Scottsdale police checking on reported damage to a car belonging to Incognito said the player told an officer he did the damage himself. Scottsdale police have closed the matter because no crime was committed.
