Former NFL offensive line champion Richie Incognito is in police custody of suspected allegations of disorderly behavior and threats, a spokesman for Scottsdale, Arizona, police said on Tuesday.
According to the police, they called Messinger Pinnacle Peck Mortuary, where Incognito made arrangements for his father's funeral.
"Incognito was obviously upset with staff and began to damage property in the business and called for employees. On several occasions during his contact with staff, Incognito threatened to retrieve weapons from his vehicle and return to shoot the employees," according to the police.
Incognito announced Sunday on Twitter that his father had died Saturday.

Thi s is the second time Incognito has been in police custody since releasing it from Buffalo Bill's retired list in May.
Two days after the release of the bills, Incognito was arrested for a boca raton, Florida gym, under which the police believed Incognito to be in a "paranoid state". An incident report received by ESPN said Incognito threw objects on high school employees and consumers and "thought that ordinary citizens were government officials who tracked and registered him".
Under the Florida Baker Act, Incognito was not arrested but was taken by the Boca Raton police for involuntary psychiatric involvement for people considered to be a danger to themselves or others.
Mike Zimmer said the Minnesota Vikings did not "have an interest" in signing Richie Incognito, despite the allegations of the Freedom Guard.
Incognito, 35, told the Associated Press in June that he was at home in Arizona after spending three days in a mental hospital. He told TMZ Sports earlier this month that he had received talks from Minnesota Vikings and Seattle Seahawks, but Vikings coach Mike Zimmer later called it "completely false".
After calling Zimmer a "liar" in a clumsy tweet, Incognito later tweeted an apology to Zimmer.
The controversial offensive line was at the heart of an investigation into bullying of former Miami Dolphins teammate Jonathan Martin 2013, leading to a three-month suspension for Incognito. In July, Incognito was named the "first national ambassador" for Boo2Bullying, an ideal anti-bullying organization in Los Angeles.
