Richie Incognito is once again in trouble with the law, as Pro Football Talk reports he has been arrested and is facing counts of disorderly conduct and threats.

TMZ Sports also reported on this story, noting Incognito was arrested at a funeral home after the death of his father.

“We’re told … the 35-year-old offensive lineman was talking with staffers at the funeral home when he suddenly exploded and began yelling at various people. Cops were called to the scene to respond to an “out of control” Incognito. He was ultimately arrested for disorderly conduct and taken to a nearby station where he was booked and posed for a mug shot.”

The former Buffalo Bills, Miami Dolphins and St. Louis Rams starter has had a string of off-field incidents come up recently, including an incident at a gym in which he allegedly threw a dumbbell at another person, prompting an involuntary psychiatric hold.

Throughout his time in the NFL, Incognito’s on-field achievements have been overshadowed by his issues off the field, including the bullying scandal involving Jonathan Martin when he was a member of the Dolphins.
