A warrant was put out for Tampa Bay Buccaneers CB Aqib Talib, and his mother, on Tuesday after they were connected to a shooting incident in Texas earlier this month. According to a police spokesman, Talib has turned himself in. He posted the $25,000 bond and has been released.
“What will happen next is we file our case with Dallas County, then that case will be presented to a Dallas County grand jury and they will choose whether to indict or not,” Garland police spokesman Joe Harn said.
The official charge is aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. His mother, who turned herself in on Tuesday, was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon as well as felon in possession of a firearm. I wonder if he will be suspended before all of this works itself out. I never agreed with that aspect of the NFL conduct policy. Being charged is one thing, being convicted is another and we know that it hasn’t always been applied fairly, but my guess is NFL lockout or no, Taib’s time in Tampa Bay Bucs uniform is over.
