Report: Grand jury to decide on Aqib Talib by Friday

A grand jury in Dallas County, Texas, is expected to decide by Friday whether or not to indict Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Aqib Talib on a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Talib is accused of firing shots at the boyfriend of his sister, and the grand jury heard the case beginning Wednesday, according to the Tampa Tribune.

“On March 30, 2011, Aqib Talib voluntarily reported to law enforcement authorities in Dallas County, Texas, to address certain charges that have been lodged against him,” Talib’s attorneys said in a statement. “Aqib is confident that once all of the facts are known, this matter will be resolved favorably and in an expeditious fashion.”

Okolo Talib, the player’s mother, is also accused of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. The incident happened on March 21 and Talib is seemingly leaving it all in the lap of his mother. Police have also alleged Talib attempted to pistol whip Shannon Billings, the boyfriend of his sister.

Talib could face up to 20 years in prison if convicted.
