On Friday, Bucs cornerback Aqib Talib was officially indicted by a grand jury on aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.A. Talib (US Presswire) His mother was also indicted.

In an affidavit obtained by Rick Stroud of the St. Petersburg Times, it's revealed that Talib’s mother told police in an interview that “it could have been Aqib” who fired the handgun in the dispute with his sister’s boyfriend.

Stroud writes:

“Police say that Talib pointed a 9mm handgun at the head of Shannon Billings, the live-in boyfriend of his sister, Saran Talib. He then attempted to pistol-whip Billings before the gun was lost in the struggle, striking a fence and jamming.

That's when police say Talib's mother, Okolo, arrived at the scene and fired several shots at Billings with a .380-caliber Ruger. At some point, Aqib Talib gained possession of his mother's gun and fired two shots at Billings, according to documents released Friday. None of the shots hit Billings.”

A conviction could carry up to 20 years in prison. Talib, 25, has been working out with his Buccaneer teammates during this offseason. His time with the organization, however, could come to an abrupt end after the lockout. It’s also possible (even likely) that he’ll be subject to a league-issued suspension as a repeat offender of the personal conduct policy.

Did anyone pick up on the fact that there were TWO guns involved?  Talib and his sister's boyfriend were fighting over a 9mm and then Mama Talib came in a blazin' with a .38.  Un - believable.



.380 not .38

Come on now, African Americans dont use revolvers.

I knew he was a head case when they were playing Atlanta (i think) and he was jawwing with Roddy White.  Remember that?  Not that he was barking and bumpin chests..... it was that he went out with like a tweaked knee, then kept yelling at White.  Remember that?  Did you see where he kept calling him a p u $$y?  while he was on the sideline with a tweak....  redonkulous.

I give up.  Where was the father during the incident?  Oh, maybe not around?  What a shock.
