Warrant Issued For Bucs Player Over Garland Shooting
GARLAND (AP) – Police in a Dallas suburb have issued an arrest warrant for Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Aqib Talib accusing him of firing a gun at his sister’s boyfriend.
Garland police said Tuesday they believe Talib and his mother, Okolo Talib, shot at the man March 21. The man wasn’t injured. Earlier that day, the man had been listed as a suspect in a disturbance and was charged with assault and interference with an emergency phone call from that incident.
Arrest warrants for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon were issued for Talib and his mother. She turned herself in Tuesday.
Police say Aqib Talib is set to turn himself in later this week. His agent, Todd France, did not immediately return a call.
