Richie Incognito’s aggressive “bullying” personality got him in trouble in 2012 with a woman at a golf tournament.
Local 10 in Florida found a police report filed against Incognito for sexually harassing a 34-year-old female volunteer when he attended the “Fins Weekend Golf Tournament.” The report states that the guard approached the woman and acted inappropriately towards her:
[The alleged victim] states that Mr. Incognito used his golf club to touch her by rubbing it up against her vagina, then up her stomach then to her chest. He then used the club to knock a pair of sunglasses off the top of her head. After that, he proceeded to lean up against her buttocks with his private parts as if dancing, saying “Let it rain, Let it Rain!” He finally finished his inappropriate behavior by emptying bottled water in her face.
The woman says other people, including event organizers, witnessed the event and did nothing to stop it. She even says a former Dolphins player came up to apologize to her and said the incident would be taken care of. It says in the police report that the woman went to police because she believed nothing was being done about the incident and she wanted an apology.
Now if that wasn’t bad enough, more eyewitness accounts of bullying from Incognito’s teammates have come out and in a recent statement released by Jonathan Martin’s lawyer, David Cornwell, he says:
Jonathan Martin’s toughness is not at issue. Jonathan has started every game with the Miami Dolphins since he was drafted in 2012. At Stanford, he was the anchor for Jim Harbaugh’s “smash mouth” brand of football and he protected Andrew Luck’s blind side.
The issue is Jonathan’s treatment by his teammates. Jonathan endured harassment that went far beyond the traditional locker room hazing. For the entire season-and-a-half that he was with the Dolphins, he attempted to befriend the same teammates who subjected him to the abuse with the hope that doing so would end the harassment. This is a textbook reaction of victims of bullying. Despite these efforts, the taunting continued. Beyond the well-publicized voice mail with its racial epithet, Jonathan endured a malicious physical attack on him by a teammate, and daily vulgar comments such as the quote at the bottom. These facts are not in dispute.
Eventually, Jonathan made a difficult choice. Despite his love for football, Jonathan left the Dolphins. Jonathan looks forward to getting back to playing football. In the meantime, he will cooperate fully with the NFL investigation.
Quote from teammate: “We are going to run train on your sister. . . . She loves me. I am going to f–k her without a condom and c– in her c—.”
Other reports say that the bullying went beyond the “hazing” and more details will come out in the upcoming weeks.
For now, Incognito is working to clear his name and plead his innocence and will file a grievance against the Dolphins for losing his weekly salary of $235, 294. 12, according to FOXSports.com’s Alex Marvez. Players cannot get paid while they’re suspended.
