Miami Dolphins offensive lineman Richie Incognito is not living up to his surname. For the second time this week, Incognito has been in the news. This time, the offensive lineman was involved in a club fight that took place in the wee hours of the morning on June 10. The fight occurred at Club Liv in the Fontainebleau Hotel. Following the incident, Incognito received a trespassing warning from Miami police and was, "advised not to return." It is unclear if Incognito will be reprimanded by the NFL for this incident, but if he ever does go back to the club he can face jail time.
The security guard of the establishment, Carlos Joseph, stated that Incognito and his friends were getting too close to a performer on stage. Joseph's requests that the group move back were vehemently denied, and the members of the group even pushed the bouncer. From there, the fight quickly escalated, involving Joseph, Incognito and some members of Incognito's group. Incognito told a different story to police. He said that he spotted the fight between his friends and Joseph and went over to stop the fight before it got out of hand. According to Incognito, he "was trying to break up the altercation when he got hit in the face" by the bouncer. Incognito sustained minor injuries and did not seek medical attention afterwards. Incognito is also the one who notified the police of the incident.
The official police report seems to lean towards Incognito's version of the story, which would explain why he simply got a trespassing warning after the ordeal. As of yet, neither the NFL nor the Dolphins have commented on the fight. Earlier this week, Incognito was also in the news due to an altercation between Houston Texans' defensive end Antonio Smith during a preseason game. Smith was later suspended for the rest of the preseason and season opener.
