Incognito pleaded guilty in connection with separate August 2018 incident

AP

A suspension for Richie Incognito is looking more and more likely.

As it turns out, Incognito faced not one but two criminal cases last August. In addition to an incident at a funeral home that resulted in a guilty plea to disorderly conduct charges, Incognito engaged in misconduct at his grandmother’s house two days earlier.

Via ESPN, Incognito pleaded guilty to to misdemeanor charges of criminal damage and disorderly conduct in April, in connection with an August 2018 incident. While arguing with his grandmother, Incognito put his fist through the wall in the living room and ripped a security system control unit from the wall at her Peoria, Arizona home.

An “enraged” Incognito (according to the police report) blamed his 90-year-old grandmother for his father’s death.

The Raiders had no comment regarding the incident involving Incognito’s grandmother, which prior to today was not publicly known.

Given an extensive history of misconduct for which Incognito has never faced league-level scrutiny, these two incidents could (and arguably should) put Incognito in line for a significant suspension. And if he hadn’t disclosed the run-in with his 90-year-old grandmother to the Raiders, that could be enough to get the Raiders to pull the plug quickly on the Incognito experiment.

  1. Welp the Raiders finally made a splash in free agency, and they still are the same old Raiders.

  2. This was obviously a very emotional time for Ritchie after the passing of his father. And since it was almost a year ago, I’d give him a pass for this.

  3. I’m not giving this dude a pass, but losing a parent is hard man. Rage, sorrow, denial, the ordeal is rough. I didn’t smash anything that didn’t belong to me, but I did blame family members and couldn’t be consoled. I imagine someone with an a history of erratic behavior before would probably have those feelings magnified. For once I feel for this guy.

    Mike Mayock- you’re better than this.

    Not when your boss is Jon Gruden!

    You got it backwards chief. This is who Mayock is. Just another John Dorsey. WIN AT ALL COSTS.

    Character is the LAST thing on Mayocks mind.

  6. I agree the death of a loved one is never good and can make people do things. Most of us don’t translate that into mass violence. But Florio’s point isn’t one event. But a P-A-T-T-E-R-N of events. Guy should not be in the league. He should get some help.

  7. Same old Raiders. They got Mayock brain washed in their outlaw philosophy pretty quick. Wake me when the Raiders have a winning season.

  8. He wasn’t in the NFL, similar to college players who were not in the NFL during dust ups, so I’d say the league has no grounds to suspend him. He was not on a roster during those infractions. What’s says florio?

  9. Are the Raiders are on the Pats schedule? If so, Goodell will do nothing.

    Nothing to see here.

    And, for good measure..Quick! Frame the Pats for something!

  10. Let the Ritchie pile on continue. Ritchie screamed and made threats but he never hurt anybody. He probably scared the zhit out of his grandmother though. Still a good signing for Vegas.

  11. What is really depressing is, when this guy does totally flip out, we can all talk about the signs early in his life.

    smh

  12. Funny how times change. 1990s Cowboys lineman Erik Williams was described as “mean to your momma” good.

  13. His grandmother! Really!!!
    No way to get a positive spin on that.
    Put him in jail and throw away the key.
    He can play for the mean machine.
    It would be great if he could take AB with him as a celly.

  14. Unbelievable….

    Antonio Brown , Berfec, now this racist, sit back and watch the implosion, best reality show on TV, Hollywood couldn’t ask for a better script.

  15. Seems like he’d be better suited up to sign up for a Mental Health evaluation. There no money in that though.

  16. with all that has been going on in Dallas, KC and cleve, why would the NFL invite this on themselves?

    they need put another team on Hard Knocks and have NBC put the Raiders in for a season of Law and Order, Criminal Intent;

    Mike Mayock has never been in a coaching or front office position, so how do you know?

  18. Elderly abuse; threatening to shoot people…good thing he didn’t take a knee or else he’d be done as a player.

  19. Gruden acts like he’s casting for The Longest Yard 3. Mayock isn’t even a scout.

  20. On the O-line for the Raiders, ya just like Suh, I hope I still see that look in his eye. . . . I want to see that look in his eye, like when he put his fist through his 90 year old grandmas wall, or when he threw those dumbbells at the spy in the gym when he was running NSA class level 3 documents through his phone. Tell me he wouldn’t strike fear in an opposing lineman looking in those kaleidoscope eyes.

  21. This man ,regardless of his skill as an OLiner, needs treatment for a serious mental disease, his recent behaviors,can be interpreted as being a danger to self and others. His playing in the NFL should not even be an option at this point.

  22. Signing Incognito tells you everything you need to know about Mayock, Gruden, and the NFL. I say it all the time and this adds more proof to it — the NFL does not care what you do off the field as long as you are a good player. In Incognito’s case, they don’t care what he does to his teammates, either.
    Signing Incognito is a black eye for the Raiders and makes the guy on the side of their helmet with the patch over his eye very appropriate.

    But the NFL lets him back in and not Kap. The hypocrisy is very real! Yep I said it.
    _____________________
    Wrong. No one wants to sign Kap for an amount that exceeds what he is now making as a professional victim and Kap does not want to sign because it would reveal to the world that he is not a victim as much as a QB who no longer has the skills and work-ethic and desire to be a starting QB.

    If Kap said he would sign for the Vet minimum he would get an opportunity. He won’t because he does not want to be exposed. Sorry, but that’s the hard truth.

    Agreed he needs help more than punishment. But aside from helping him there should also be attention to not hurting him any further too. Since his behavior is highly suggestive of CTE damage that possibility has to be in the consideration here. (Hopefully they will soon finish shaking out those methods for confirming it in a living person, until then the only true confirmation would still not be possible until he passes someday) it is really questionable to send him back out there to take more hits. So I think he should be kept off the field not as a punishment but instead as an action in his best interests.

  25. Disorderly Conduct is a misdemeanor, not criminal.

    Leave the guy alone, his dad just died.

    Kap was 1 of the worst QB’s in the league when he walked away from it. Richie was a Pro Bowler.

    Nuf said.

    Incognito was actually out there applying for jobs. Kaep is not. it should not be underestimated the benefits of actually wanting and looking for a job can have on the chances of actually landing one.

    Bingo. Maylock can be better than this. Gruden can be better than this. Oakland SHOULD be better than this and the NFL NEEDS to be better than this.

    It's time the league starts to rid itself of these meatheads. Enough is enough. Clean it up. The league will survive nicely without players that have had multiple violent behavior issues. These guys don't deserve to have jobs in the NFL.

  28. Yah. Not a Boy Scout.
    Raiders are taking advantage of Richie’s mental health.
    It will end very badly for Richie and everyone (but Richie?) knows it.

    I am so tired of hearing about CTE whenever there’s a nut playing in the NFL. Some people are just plain bad and Incognito is one of them.
    It’s very telling that boxers who get in trouble or die at an early age never get talked about having CTE. If they get in trouble, they are locked up and that’s the end of it. If they die of dementia, no one bats an eye. Look at Muhammed Ali, Jerry Quarry, Mike Quarry and hundreds of other fighters who suffered from dementia and died. They don’t matter because they didn’t play in the NFL, they were fighters.
    My son had a heart transplant in 2004 and Brian Kenny, then of ESPN, was kind enough to have former heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield call him when he was in the hospital waiting for a heart. My son said he felt bad because Holyfield was very hard to understand and was clearly suffering some brain problems from his days in the ring. I have seen him on tv over the years and it’s obvious he is suffering from his days in the ring. But no one cares about Evander.
    Yet now, every football player who does something bad or has dementia, everyone blames it on football. My mom died from Alzheimer’s disease and so did my oldest brother. They both suffered from dementia for years. No one ever mentioned CTE in their cases. My brother played football in junior high school, high school, and then played in the Army on a team when he was stationed in South Korea. Again, no one mentioned CTE with him.
    What I am saying here is that you don’t have to have played in the NFL to have dementia. I’d be willing to bet that some of the players have had dementia or will have dementia will get it and would have gotten it had they never played a down of football . It’s just part of life that some people will suffer from dementia.
    The bottom line is, if you play football, you can suffer from many illnesses later on in life. It’s their choice and if they don’t want to get hurt, then they shouldn’t play.

  30. so he punched a wall and ripped the security thing off the wall. wow i guess we should all lose our jobs if we punch a wall.

  31. It’s a misdemeanor everyone.

    Let’s kick everyone in here out of these comments, who has a misdemeanor on the books.

    Do as I say, not as I do !

  32. God I love the haters who run their mouths on here. going to be hilarious when the 2020 Las Vegas Raiders raise their 4th Lombardi trophy. Then what will the haters say?

    They’ll say wake up kid, you’re dreaming!

  34. Nope no pass for the Faders nor Ritchie. How he has escaped suspensions in the past is beyond me. Now he should get 3-5 games. The only thing he didn’t do was beat up his 90 yr old grandma. I am pretty sure my father’s 3rd wife either killed him or just let him rot in his bed. By the time I found out and brought my 2 yr grandaughter to see him, he was already in IC and dying. And then I had to fight and bribe my step mother to go away as she contested his will. The lawyer said it was cheaper to pay her off. So don’t tell me about grief etc. Bad people are gonna be bad people – period.

  35. I don’t get why all the Raider fans on here feel the need to defend this move. You can love a team and recognize when they do something stupid. Signing a 36 year old who was placed in a psych ward and who threatened to shoot up a funeral home–and pairing him with the collection of loons you’ve already amassed is not good planning.

  36. FYI, If a player is not on an NFL roster while committing offences the NFL cannot take action against said player because he was not an employee of the NFL at the time of the offence. So the law will have to intervene and demand counseling and or any other actions but the NFL can not suspend him.
