Richie Incognito Headshot
AVENTURA, Fla. -

Miami Dolphins lineman Richie Incognito harassed a volunteer at the annual Fins Weekend Golf Tournament last year by touching her privates with a golf club and emptying a bottle of water in her face, according to a police report.

The alleged incident happened May 18, 2012, at the Turnberry Resort & Club.

The then 34-year-old volunteer told police that Incognito had been drinking, and when he was at the hole where she was working, he rubbed her privates with a golf club and knocked a pair of sunglasses off her head with it, according to the report.

"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 volunteer informed her supervisor, who contacted Miami Dolphins security, police say. The team's security said they would handle the incident.

The volunteer told police several people, including a sponsor of the event, saw Incognito's actions but didn't stop him.

Former Dolphins wide receiver Nat Moore heard about the incident and apologized to the volunteer, according to the report.

The volunteer later filed a police report because she believed nothing was being done about the incident. It says that she wanted Incognito to apologize.

"She felt like he didn't care and thought the whole incident was in fun and games," it says. "Other people apologized for him, but not him."

The volunteer said she can't talk about the incident because she signed a confidentially agreement.

The Dolphins have no comment on the incident.

Incognito was suspended Sunday after teammate Jonathan Martin's representatives reportedly turned over voice mails and texts with racial slurs and threats of violence to the Dolphins and the NFL.

The NFL is investigating whether Incognito harassed or bullied Martin, and whether their teammates and the organization mishandled the matter.
