Incognito on taking bat to his car: I was just venting

The strange tale of Richie Incognito took another turn on Thursday when it was reported that he took a baseball bat to his own Ferrari and breaking off a part of it in the grill of the car. 

Nicole Garcia of FOX 10 in Phoenix decided to take a trip to Incognito’s house to find out if the report of his work with the bat was correct and was able to land a somewhat strange interview with the embattled offensive lineman. Incognito posed for a picture sitting on the hood of the car and confirmed that he was the one who made the alterations to his vehicle as a way of venting some emotions.

“Oh that was that was just me venting, that was self expression, that’s a piece of art. The happiest day of my life was when I got that car and now the second happiest day will be when I donate it to charity,” Incognito said. “The Ferrari is a story unto itself, the Ferrari is one entity, but I will tell you this the Ferrari is going to be for sale through my mission which is helping the brotherhood, whatever brotherhood it is.”

Incognito did not say why he was venting, but did talk briefly about the situation with the Dolphins and Jonathan Martin that left Incognito with a highly uncertain future as a professional football player. Incognito said he, Martin, Dolphins owner Stephen Ross and the reporter were all “brothers and sisters” that were here “to lift each other up.”

Incognito also said that he wanted to “move on” from what happened in Miami, which would probably be easier if he didn’t take baseball bats to his expensive sports cars.
