Incognito then allegedly “threatened to retrieve guns from his vehicle and return to shoot the employees.”

Incognito was reportedly “out of control,” and as a result police arrived on the scene and took him into custody.

The 35-year-old lineman announced his retirement from the NFL in April. However, he later asked for his release from the Buffalo Bills so he could play elsewhere.

While Buffalo did release Incognito, he remains unsigned.
