Court documents say the former Buffalo Bills player reportedly damaged property in the business and threatened to shoot employees.

Police say Incognito was incoherent and at one point asked to have his deceased father's head cut off for "research purposes."

Staff also said Incognito "chest-bumped" an employee at one point, then told an employee that he had guns in this truck.

He faces charges of disorderly conduct and making threats.

Just this week, Incognito apologized for those actions that led to his arrest claiming he 'lost his cool' after his father's death. 

Below is Incognito's apology in its entirety: 

"I just want to apologize to all my fans, and the people of the Bills Mafia, the Rams, the Dolphins, the University of Nebraska, all these people that have supported me. I let em' down. I am not guilty. And you know the court process will play itself out. But I feel like I let everybody down. I lost my cool with my father passing. And I feel confident that I will be vindicated in the court process or whatever the heck we're in right now."
