In Shapiro's words
• "He was around me and my situation for everything – nightclubs, in my house, ruined my jet skis, which [each] cost $12,000 brand new."
• "He was the best friend of Devin Hester, and after [Reddick] had a serious knee injury, I still continued to hang out with him even though he didn't have much football left in him."
