Felony arrest warrant issued for Aqib Talib
Trouble is mounting for Aqib Talib.
Garland, Texas, police have issued felony arrest warrants for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback and his mother Okolo Talib stemming from a domestic disturbance and alleged shooting last week.
The Garland Police Department announced that Talib is scheduled to turn himself in later this week, according to the Tampa Tribune. He faces a warrant for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and bail will be set at $25,000.
Talib and Okolo allegedly intervened in a matter involving Talib’s sister and her boyfriend. Talib allegedly attempted to pistol whip the boyfriend and then fired shots at him as he fled. Okolo Talib has already turned herself in to authorities.
Talib is no stranger to the NFL’s personal conduct policy. He was suspended for the first game of the 2010 season for striking a cab driver in the head. This charge could lead to far more trouble with him from the NFL, and that’s after the court system handles its business.
