Richie Incognito Checks Himself Into Rehab Clinic

Things just got real for Richie Incognito.

Yesterday we blogged that he was guilty of smashing his Ferrari with a baseball bat. Today’s new doesn’t get much better.

TMZ.com is reporting that Richie checked himself into a rehab clinic and his friends and family are concerned.

Sources tell us … Incognito did not voluntarily admit himself — and the Scottsdale PD filled out a petition to have Incognito admitted to the facility.

We’re told … standard operating procedure is that the PD petition requires a detailed description of at least two incidents that show psychiatric instability, however Scottsdale PD has not confirmed this is the case with Incognito.

Sources connected to the situation tell us … Incognito didn’t resist … and acknowledges that he needs help dealing with all of the drama in his life.

Besides being the focus of a 5 month NFL investigation where he’s accused of bullying Jonathan Martin, Incognito’s parents are also in the middle of a divorce.
