According to the article, Incognito was at the Messinger Pinnacle Peak Mortuary in Scottsdale, Arizona, on Monday to make arrangements for his father who died over the weekend.

Police Sgt. Ben Hoster is quoted in the article, “Incognito reportedly was upset with staff and began to damage property inside the business and shout at employees.”

The article also states that witnesses at the funeral home told police that Incognito wanted them to cut his dead dad’s head off for research purposes and Incognito punched caskets, threw pamphlets around and took an urn from a shelf and slammed it down on top of a casket.  Two mortuary employees took cover in a room downstairs before police arrived and arrested Incognito.

Incognito was booked on suspicion of misdemeanor charges of threats and disorderly conduct and bonded out on Tuesday.
