DALLAS (AP) – Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Aqib Talib has been indicted on a charge accusing him of firing a gun at his sister’s boyfriend.
Attorneys for Talib said the fourth-year player was indicted on a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon by a Dallas County grand jury on Friday.
Police in Garland have said they believe Talib and his mother shot at the man in March. The man was not injured. Talib is out of jail on $25,000 bond.
Attorneys Jay Reisinger and Frank Perez say they’re confident Talib will be cleared because the grand jury “was not privy to a number of important facts.”
Talib played football at a high school in Richardson, another Dallas suburb, and at Kansas.
