If you believe in karma, this story is for you.
Retired defensive tackle Warren Sapp, who last year was charged with three counts of domestic violence after he allegedly bit the finger of and stepped on the face of his then-girlfriend, got some comeuppance on Wednesday thanks to a hungry shark.
Via Tampa Bay Times reporter Greg Auman, Sapp was on a charter, diving for lobster off the Florida Keys, when he and a shark went after the same lobster. Sapp got the lobster, but the shark got a piece of Sapp (the lobster was probably a tastier bite, if we’re being honest).
Sapp told Auman what happened:
“I was sticking my hand in a hole and a monster locked on me,” Sapp said. “You’ve got to be careful sticking your hand in some holes down here.
“It went past the white meat, up to the gristle.”
Sapp said the boat crew wrapped his arm in duct tape and they finished the expedition.
“It was me and the shark, one on one,” he said. “Then he put those razor sharp teeth in me and I knew who was the boss. Holy smokes. I snapped my arm, spit the respirator out and went for the surface.”
