Grand jury will hear evidence in Aqib Talib's assault case

Aqib Talib has maintained his innocence in the sordid case in Garland, Texas, where police allege he attempted to pistol whip the boyfriend of his sister before shooting at the man.

A Dallas County grand jury will hear evidence in the case on May 18, according to Rick Stroud of the St. Petersburg Times. Talib has been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. The second-degree felony carries a punishment of two to 20 years in prison.

Talib and his mother Okolo got into an argument with Shannon Billings on March 21. Okolo also faces charges. Stroud has reported that the Buccaneers are expected to release Talib when the NFL’s lockout ends.
