Richie Incognito told police he was “breaking up a fight”


Miami Dolphins offensive guard Richie Incognito has been in the news quite a bit lately. Incognito was involved in an incident with Houston Texans defensive lineman last weekend when Smith ripped Incognito’s helmet off his head and swung it at him (Smith has been suspended for the final two preseason games and the first game of the regular season).

Then, on Wednesday, Incognito was accused of knocking out a security guard at the Fountainbleu hotel in Miami. One source says Incognito knocked the security guard out with a punch, but that Incognito was punched first in the altercation.

According to Incognito, he was doing nothing more than attempting to break up a fight.

Pro Football Talk has obtained a copy of the police report:

The incident took place when Incognito and his friends were attempting to get close to the stage during a performance at a club in the Fontainebleau hotel in Miami. A security guard told police that he asked Incognito’s group to step back, and someone in the group replied, “f–k you and what are you going to do about it?”

At that point, an altercation started between the security guard and Incognito’s friend, and Incognito told police that he was just trying to step in and stop the fight when he was hit in the face by the guard. The police report says Incognito had minor injuries to his face but declined medical treatment.

Incognito has not been arrested.

    Who cares, reports say the other guy struck first. Not news.
