Richie Incognito has a reputation of being a dirty player. Earlier today, Adam Schefter reported that Incognito had knocked out a security guard at Club LIV in Miami before the start of training camp. Schefter’s report states that the Dolphins have tried to “bury it”.
Now it seems Schefter didnt have a copy of the police report, which tells an entirely different story, according to NFL.com’s Gregg Rosenthal.
Sgt. Bobby Hernandez with the Miami Beach police told NFL.com that Incognito wasn’t arrested or booked into jail after being accused of being involved in a fight at Club Liv.
According to the Miami Beach police report, a man who was guarding the stage at Club Liv told police that Incognito and his group were trying to get closer to a performer on stage. The man guarding the stage, Carlos Joseph, 32, of Miami-Dade County, told police that he told Incognito and his group to “please step back.”
One of the men in Incognito’s group responded by pushing Joseph, yelling at him, and instigating a fight that involved Joseph, Incognito, and Incognito’s friends. They were escorted out of the club.
Seems there is a big difference between “knocking out a security guard” and “getting punched breaking up a fight”
This was very Broussardish of the normally on point Schefter, and is another case where a guy’s reputation gets in the way of the facts.
