Richie arrived to Messinger Mortuary on Monday after his father passed away. One staffer told police the family had advised him that Richie would not be allowed to attend the funeral because he’d been “acting erratically.” When staff confronted Richie, he began “punching caskets and throwing things.
One staffer told cops, Richie told him he had a truck full of guns outside and used his hand to make the shape of a gun. The staffer clearly felt threatened and said he ran into a secure room where he knew he’d be safe.
When cops arrived, they arrested Incognito at gunpoint. Cops say Richie “appeared to lack concentration and was unable to maintain a coherent thought, rather, he appeared to ramble about numerous things that did not correlate.” Cops say his mood would swing from respectful and calm to angry.

At this point, it’s too early to say exactly what’s happening inside Incognito’s mind, but whatever it may be — whether it’s substance abuse, CTE, personality disorder, or otherwise — it’s a very serious issue and needs to be attended to immediately. Incognito is in an extremely dark place and he’s going to need some serious help getting out of it.
