Former Miami Dolphins offensive lineman Richie Incognito smashed his Ferrari with a baseball bat on Feb. 27. 

According to TMZ, Incognito admitted to the Scottsdale Police Department he smashed his own car in a fit of rage. 

"Richie Incognito smashed his own Ferrari with a baseball bat...at least, that's what he told police this morning...TMZ Sports has learned. 

"We broke the story...neighbors noticed someone had taken a bat to the front of Richie's black Ferrari in front of his home in AZ yesterday.

"Now, The Scottsdale Police Department tells us...they spoke with Richie early this morning and he admitted he took the bat to his own car. 

"Clearly, Incognito was pissed about something ...but we don't know what set him off. 

"We reached out to Richie's people for comment -- so far, no word back."

Omar Kelly of The South Florida Sun-Sentinel, who says Incognito's Ferrari is valued at approximately $300,000, reports Sgt. Mark Clark of the Scottsdale Police Department  and his team were made aware of the incident "when TMZ brought it to their attention Wednesday afternoon." 

With this, Clark confirms Incognito's admission to Kelly.

"Our patrol officers contacted Mr. Incognito at his residence to ascertain if he was in need of police assistance or report of the damage to his car. He told our officers that he damaged his own car and did not wish (to file) a police report." 

Incognito, who is embroiled in the ugly bullying scandal with former Dolphins teammate Jonathan Martin, also admits to having anger management issues. Kelly notes he "has undergone treatment for them."

Kelly then describes Incognito's situation in Arizona. 

"Incognito is in Arizona training with NFL players. A source close to him described him as stressed, but claims he's in 'good spirits' while he awaits the NFL's discipline for his conduct. Commissioner Roger Goodell could dole out more suspensions for Incognito, and suspend (Mike) Pouncey and (John) Jerry for a few games. 

"Incognito needs a ruling from Goodell because it is possibly affecting his ability to find work. He will be a free agent in two weeks and needs to find a new team because the Dolphins have no interest in re-signing him."

Two weeks ago, NFL investigator Ted Wells released a report which concludes Incognito, Pouncey and Jerry were "engaged in a pattern of harassment directed" at Martin, another Dolphins player and an assistant trainer.  

The Palm Beach Post's Andrew Abramson wrote on Feb. 27 that Incognito's future in the NFL is still uncertain while he awaits the league's verdict.
