Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Aqib Talib(notes) is in a heap of trouble. The following paragraph Monday from Richie Whitt at Sportatorium, the Dallas Observer's Sports Blog, is a doozy.
According to a GPD initial report about the incident and two sources familiar with the case Talib allegedly attempted to pistol-whip his sister Saran's boyfriend, Shannon Billings, and then, after a struggle, used his mother Okolo's pistol and fired several shots at Billings as he fled the scene on foot.
If you're scoring at home, that's a pistol-whipping and a borrowing of mom's gun to shoot at your sister's boyfriend, all in one paragraph. Yikes.
Police currently describe Talib as a "person of interest" in the shooting. Billings, the alleged victim, has been involved in two other family-violence cases involving Talib's sister, Saran.
You can check out more details of the police report here. Talib has yet to release any kind of statement about the incident.
