More details have emerged from Richie Incognito being taken into custody for a mental evaluation, and theyre not good.
The former Buffalo Bills player was taken into custody after a recent alleged altercation at a gym. TMZ has now given us some insight into what was said, and it was brutal. In fact, Incognito reportedly believed he was in possession of highly classified NSA documents. (RELATED: NFL STAR HELD BY POLICE FOR PSYCH EVALUATION. THE DETAILS ARE DISTURBING)
Richie Incognito was suffering an “altered, paranoid state” when confronted by police at a Florida gym … “and believed ordinary citizens were government officials that were tracking him.”
“Theres a guy walking around with headphones on,” Incognito said … “Im running NSA class level 3 documents through my phone. I cant have anybody in blue tooth capability of me or taking pictures of me.”
The officer says he asked Incognito why the government was trying to watch him and Richie told the cop he didnt have high enough clearance.
This whole thing is sad and tragic. I dont know how to even respond to a situation like this. I cant imagine being a cop, and having an NFL player tell me I dont have clearance to see these NSA documents. Thats about has clear cut as it gets to know that theres a serious problem.
At the same time, I think we can understand why this is kind of funny to envision such a large guy running around the gym telling people about how he has highly classified documents. I would probably honestly think the guy was just joking around. Thats the sad part. Im sure there were many people who werent sure what was going on.
Like I said before, I really hope he gets any help he might need at this point.
