SCOTTSDALE, AZ -- Former NFL player Richie Incognito was arrested on misdemeanor charges of disorderly conduct and making threats, Scottsdale Police said Tuesday.

"Incognito reportedly was upset with staff and began to damage property inside the business and shout at employees. At several points during his contact with staff, Incognito threatened to retrieve guns from his vehicle and return to shoot the employees," according to the police.
In June, Icognito spent three days in a mental hospital in Boca Raton Florida, after an involuntary psychiatric commitment for people seen as a danger to themselves or others.
Icognito was released by the Buffalo Bills in May.
