Report: Richie Incognito accused of harassing woman at 2012 charity golf outing
Miami Dolphins lineman Richie Incognito reportedly harassed a female volunteer at a charity golf tournament last year, according to a police report obtained by a local Miami ABC affiliate.
According to the report, which was filed in Aventura, Fla., Incognito harassed the 34-year-old woman by touching her private parts with his golf club. The report states that Incognito had been drinking:
The then 34-year-old volunteer told police that Incognito had been drinking, and when he was at the hole where she was working, he rubbed her privates with a golf club and knocked a pair of sunglasses off her head with it, according to the report.
“After that, he proceeded to lean up against her buttocks with his private parts as if dancing, saying ‘Let it rain! Let it rain!’” the report states. “He finally finished his inappropriate behavior by emptying bottled water in her face.”
The alleged incident occurred on May 18, 2012, at the Turnberry Resort & Club, during the annual "Fins Weekend Golf Tournament" for charity. The volunteer told Local 10, the ABC affiliate, that she can't talk about the incident because she signed a confidentiality agreement. The Dolphins did not provide comment.
Incognito was suspended indefinitely by the Dolphins earlier this week for allegedly bullying teammate Jonathan Martin. He allegedly left voicemail for Incognito's phone that included a racial slur and expletives, as well as threats against Martin and his family.
Many Dolphins players have come to Incognito's defense over the past few days, and he is expected to file a grievance against the team. “I’m just trying to weather the storm right now. This will pass," Incognito said on Tuesday, in his most recent comments on the ordeal.
