Biggs: Cabbie refuses to let Talib in pretrial program

The cab driver that was allegedly assaulted by Aqib Talib has refused to grant prosecutors permission to offer the Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback a pretrial intervention program for first-time offenders that could lessen his sentence.

The Tampa Tribune reported that Talib’s trial was continued Monday until Dec 14. Talib has been charged with misdemeanor battery for an Aug. 19 incident in which David Duggan said Talib hit him while he was driving 70 mph on the interstate taking Talib and two other Buccaneers players from a St. Petersburg night club to a hotel.

The pretrial program requires victims to agree to defendants being allowed in the system and Duggan has refused, saying that Talib didn’t even apologize to him.

“Why should I give him anything?” Duggan said, according to the report.

The Buccaneers and NFL are waiting to see what happens next with the case.
