Richie Incognito, the Miami Dolphins’ player who was at the center of an inquiry into locker room harassment, told police investigation how his Ferrari had been damaged that he had smashed the car himself.

Police went to Incognito’s Scottsdale, Ariz., home after TMZ Sports contacted them over a photo of the black sports car showed a broken baseball bat next to a dented hood, with part of the bat in the grill. Sgt. Mark Clark of the Scottsdale police told the Associated Press that Incognito assumed responsibility for the damage. No crime report was filed and police consider the matter closed.

Thirteen days ago, an investigation determined that Incognito and two other Dolphins offensive linemen had “engaged in workplace bullying” involving Jonathan Martin, another offensive lineman and an assistant trainer.
