Aqib Talib Named "Person of Interest" In Investigation

A report in the Dallas Observer on Monday says that Tampa Bay Buccaneers corner back Aqib Talib is being sought by the Garland, TX police department as a "person of interest" in an alleged altercation involving the player's mother, sister and sister's boyfriend.

From the Observer:
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.
It's not the first time Talib has been entangled with police since being drafted in 2008. In 2009, he was charged with simple battery and resisting arrest after allegedly punching a cab driver. Talib entered a plea of not guilty and reached a financial settlement with the driver in order to avoid a civil suit.

In the meantime, when football resumes, Talib will likely have to pay a price since the NFL has said that it will continue to enforce its Personal Conduct Policy. More importantly, Talib should be worried about any penalties local law enforcement will have for him if his involvement is anything like what is being reported.
