What in the world is going on with former Buffalo Bills offensive lineman Richie Incognito?

The man is one TMZ-quality incident away from being a regular on "Keeping Up With the Kardashians." The drama from his camp has been bizarre this offseason, to say the least.

Firing his agency, retiring, ​asking for release, unretiringthrowing dumbells at a person in a local gym—it's hard to keep up with the madness.

The 34-year-old four-time Pro Bowler with mountains of talent is now in the midst of a potential career-ending meltdown after Boca Raton Police Department arrested him on Wednesday.

According to Buffalo ABC affiliate, WKBW (h/t Deadspin's Laura Wagner), a victim stated that Incognito got into an argument with another man over politics, threw a tennis ball at him, screamed "get off my f---ing playground" and then hurled a weight at the guy.

Instead of getting arrested, the 12-year NFL veteran was placed under "involuntary psychiatric hold."

Incognito underwent a similar scenario of mental evaluation during the 2013-14 bullying incident with teammate Jonathan Martin. 

At that time, he checked himself into an Arizona facility for therapy to deal with the aftermath and pay the price for his treatment toward Martin.

You have to wonder what underlying issue is causing all of this as the motives and details from this latest gym issue still remain murky at the moment.
