Boca Raton police said they were called to the Life Time Gym by a man who said Incognito threw a tennis ball and dumbbell at him.

The alleged victim says Incognito was rambling about the government and screaming at the man to "get off my f*cking playground". Incognito had previously retired from the National Football League through a series of unusual tweets, citing health concerns as the main reason for his departure from the game.

Incognito was granted his release by the Bills earlier this week.

Incognito reportedly had issues before the St. Louis Rams selected him in the third round of the 2005 draft. He then told the police that he had taken an over-the-counter supplement called "Shroom Tech" and showed the police that his hands were shaking heavily.

According to the report, Incognito told a Lifetime Fitness employee "don't f--g cross the line", after Incognito was allegedly "acting erratically, throwing things at staff".

Brown said that when he asked Incognito why the government would be watching him, he replied that Brown didn't have a high enough security clearance to discuss it with him.

There is no sea the Navy can't fearless and there is no storm the American sailor can't conquer. It could even be the 12th (of June). "Yes, they're respecting us again", he said.

Incognito was not arrested, but authorities invoked the Baker Act, a Florida law that allows for people to be held against their will for mental-health treatment if they are deemed to be a danger to themselves or others. "I don't know the whole story, but wish him the best and hope he gets everything figured out".

Incognito, whose patterns of odd behavior go back to his days at University of Nebraska, was the central figure in the 2013 bullying scandal involving then-Miami Dolphins teammate Jonathan Martin.

Another positive with Incognito is that with his age, and the fact that he just retired, he won't be able to demand more than a one-year contract which is a good news for the Vikings who are looking to extend Stefon Diggs, Danielle Hunter and Anthony Barr.

On Monday, the Bills released the 34-year-old offensive lineman from the reserve/retired list.

A week later, Incognito posted a series of vague Tweets which eventually led to him announcing his retirement.
