Dolphins left guard Richie Incognito received a trespassing warning on June 10th after an alleged fight with a security guard at Club Liv in Miami Beach, according to a police report first obtained by The Palm Beach Post.
Incognito and some friends got into a skirmish with Carlos Joseph, a security guard who has the same name and birth date as the former University of Miami and NFL right tackle. Joseph played for UM from 2001-2004 and was on San Diego and Jacksonville’s rosters from 2004-2006.
The report said that Incognito and friends of his were trying to get close to a performer on stage when Joseph asked them to step back. Somebody from Incognito’s group allegedly said to Joseph “f— you and what are you doing to do about it?” and pushed Joseph.
Incognito told police that he was trying to break up the fight when he got hit in the face by Joseph.
Incognito had minor injuries to his face and refused medical treatment. Incognito received a trespassing warning by Miami Beach police and “advised not to return,” according to police.
Incognito and Joseph were unavailable for comment.
Incognito is 6-foot-3, 319 pounds. Joseph was listed at 6-6, 342 pounds at UM.
His brother, William Joseph, was a defensive tackle for the New York Giants (2003-2007) and Oakland Raiders (2008-2010).
Dolphins officials did not return a call for comment on the incident. NFL officials declined comment.
Incognito was in the news earlier this week when video showed Houston Texans’ defensive end Antonio Smith hitting Incognito in the head with his own helmet in Saturday’s preseason game. Smith was suspended on Wednesday for two preseason games and the regular season opener.
