Nfl Incognito Accused Of Inappropriate Touching, Miami Dolphins lineman Richie Incognito was investigated last year for harassing a volunteer at the Dolphins’ annual golf tournament by allegedly molesting her with a golf club, according to Aventura, Fla., police.
The original police report states that the alleged incident happened at the Turnberry Resort & Club in Aventura, but no charges were ever filed against Incognito.
The 34-year-old volunteer told police Incognito had been drinking and was “acting very inappropriate towards her,” and that she went to police after Incognito said he wouldn’t apologize.
The report states the the female volunteer told police that Incognito “used his golf club to touch her by rubbing it up against her v*g*n*, then up her stomach then to her chest. He then used the club to knock a pair of sunglasses off the top of her head.
“After that, he proceeded to lean up against her buttocks with his private parts as if dancing, saying ‘Let it rain! Let it rain!’” the report states. “He finally finished his inappropriate behavior by emptying bottled water in her face.”
The story was first reported Thursday by WPLG-ABC in Miami.
The woman, who is black, told several media outlets she has declined to talk because she had signed a confidentiality agreement. Incognito, who is white, was suspended by the Dolphins on Sunday for conduct detrimental to the team amid accusations he bullied and used racially charged terms against teammate Jonathan Martin, who has since left the team.
Martin, a second-year player, is with his family in California, where he is undergoing counseling for emotional issues.

Welcome to Chicome — a small village in Mozambique, located 150 kilometers off the beaten track and an eight-hour drive through the bush.
Chicome exists without electricity or running water — instead it lives off the “Three F’s”: farming, family and football.
“Having less is interesting because it makes us see things in a different way,” renowned international photographer Jessica Hilltout told CNN.
“What I know is that everyone says the same thing, how can people be so content?
“Happiness is a state of mind. You see people with so much who are buried in their belongings and burdened by their attachment to possessions.
“Those who have less also have less worries and are more focused on what is essential.”
Football is what keeps the village breathing. Every evening a match takes place amid noise and a carnival of color.
It wasn’t easy at the beginning. I was sitting in my tent, crying, why am I doing this?
At 4pm each and every day the whistle sounds to signal the start of play with people arriving from all sides of the bush onto the field.
“It was a moment of magic,” Hilltout said. “They forget the hardship of the day and people just had fun. Not just for the players but for fans, the wives, it was real delight.
South Korea Gender Boycott Football, Rival coaches in South Korea’s women’s league have threatened to boycott the new season if Seoul City striker Park Eun-Seon does not have a gender test.
Park was top scorer in the league with 19 goals in 22 games as Seoul City finished second in the 2013 season.
The Korea Football Association said Park, 26, passed a gender test at 15.
“We have no intention of accepting the gender verification test just to stop the boycott,” said Seoul Sports Council general secretary Kim Joon-Soo.
“But if it is needed for Park to compete in an international game and under specific regulations of Fifa, we will consider it.”
It is not the first time the South Korea international’s gender has been questioned, with the most recent occasion coming before the 2010 AFC Women’s Asian Cup, when host nation China raised the issue. She was not selected by South Korea for the tournament.
“This is a serious violation of human rights that she’s suffering for a second time. The question regarding Park’s gender identity shall never be raised again. The city of Seoul will take all necessary measures to protect our player’s human rights,” Kim added.
Writing on her Facebook page Park, who played at the 2003 World Cup, 2004 Olympics and 2005 Asian Games, said she felt “humiliated” by the row.
“I have gone through the gender examination thing several times. I did it in a World Cup, in an Olympics and in several others and there were no problems,” she added.
“I’ve worked so hard to get to this point, and I will not give up easily. I know what these people are trying to do, and I won’t fall down.”
The boycott threat was made by coaches from six of the seven WK-League sides, and they also asked the Korea Women’s Football Federation (KWFF) to bar Park from playing until her gender is verified.
Nfl Dolphins Bullying, Florida The basic role that Jonathan Martin and Richie Incognito shared as offensive linemen for the Miami Dolphins was protecting quarterback Ryan Tannehill.
Tannehill is defending both Martin and Incognito, the central characters in a bullying saga that has taken both offensive linemen off the field and continued to evolve Wednesday when the NFL appointed a lawyer to investigate possible misconduct within the team workplace. Shortly afterward, many Dolphins spoke out about the matter for the first time – and with at least one questioning Martin’s motives.
“I don’t know why he’s doing this,” offensive lineman Tyson Clabo said. “And the only person who knows why, his name is Jonathan Martin.”
Two people familiar with the situation told The Associated Press on Wednesday that Martin considered quitting football in the past, with one of those people saying it was because of how other offensive linemen treated him. The people spoke on condition of anonymity because the organization has not given specific reasons about his departure from the team.
Incognito is suspended. Martin left the Dolphins last week after a lunchroom prank, and remains excused.
Meanwhile, ProFootballTalk.com is reporting that before Martin left the team on Oct. 28, Martin’s agent, Rick Smith, called Dolphins Jeff Ireland and let him know about the situation involving Incognito. Sources said Ireland allegedly told Smith that Martin should “punch” Incognito. That never happened and Martin decided to leave the team.
“If you had asked Jon Martin a week before who his best friend on the team was, he would have said Richie Incognito,” Tannehill said. “The first guy to stand up for Jonathan when anything went down on the field, any kind of tussle, Richie was the first guy there. When they wanted to hang out outside of football, who was together? Richie and Jonathan.”
The prank was a silly one – when Martin sat down to eat, everyone else at the table stood up and walked away. It’s apparently a go-to comedic ploy for the Dolphins; Tannehill and offensive lineman John Jerry both said they’ve been targets of that very act in the past, and that it’s typically just laughed off.
Sailing Trash Eco Transat, Take a walk along almost any beach in any part of the world and one’s experience is often spoiled by the sight of trash — flotsam and jetsam — washed ashore from the ocean.
It’s a massive global problem, made worse by the modern use of plastics that do not readily biodegrade.
One area of the North Pacific has earned the unwanted tag of “the Great Pacific Garbage patch” and covers double the size of Texas — with an estimated six kilos of plastic for every kilo of natural plankton.
This swirls about 20 meters below the surface of the water and, with other slowly degrading garbage, poses an obvious threat to marine life and the ecological balance.
Marine conservation groups have long campaigned for better environmental protection of our oceans, but have now found high-profile support from a pair of world-class long-distance racing sailors — Rob Windsor of the United States and Britain’s Hannah Jenner.
They have brought into sharp focus a practice that neither other competitors taking part in epic yachting classics nor the sponsors of these events would ever wish to dwell upon.
Crews — desperate to free up space in their cramped conditions and ever mindful of the need to save weight — leave their own trail of trash dumped overboard as they sail as fast as possible across the oceans.
Until now it’s been standard practice for their fellow competitors, who must balance environmental concerns with obvious practical necessity, particularly when at sea for extended periods.
But Windsor and Jenner, among the favorites to win the Transat Jacques Vabre — a month-long, 5,600-nautical-mile race from France to Brazil — are pledging to stop the dumping as part of a new eco-friendly approach to ocean racing.
“Cleaner. Faster. Better” is the motto of Windsor and Jenner’s 11th Hour Racing team and they want to be as good as their word.
The pair have been rigorously training for several months in their 40-foot monohull for the annual event, considered one of the most prestigious on the yachting calendar, which the 44 entries started from Le Havre on Thursday after a delay for bad weather.
Watch Team Pull Off Incredible Hail Mary, It didn’t look like Auburn’s quarterback would even get a chance to throw this last-second pass. Auburn WR Sammie Coats makes an improbable Hail Mary catch (VIDEO), Auburn’s best offense against Louisiana-Monroe has been trick and lucky plays.
The Tigers used a throw-back to quarterback Kiehl Frazier for their trick play to tie the game at 14 and then took the lead off of a Hail Mary play at the end of the half.
Frazier worked his way out of trouble and found Sammie Coats in the back of the end zone. Coats outjumped several Louisiana-Monroe defenders to come down with the ball in one of the most improbable catches we’ve seen this season.
