Buccaneers CB Aqib Talib Says His Mother Fired All The Shots

Discussion in 'Tampa Bay Buccaneers' started by BigBlueBruiser, Mar 31, 2011.

  1. Bucs cornerback Aqib Talib has been busy preparing a vigorous defense of charges that he fired gun shots at his sister’s boyfriend but finally surrendered to Texas police Tuesday morning on felony arrest warrant. Talib, 25, has retained law firms from two states and hired a Dallas private investigator who has questioned neighbors that witnessed the March 21 shooting that rattled the quiet subdivision of Charleston Commons. He posted $25,000 bail and was released after spending about two hours being booked in the Garland jail. Talib and his mother, Okolo, are charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after police say they took turns firing gun shots at Shannon Billings, 40, who describes himself as the common-law husband of Talib’s sister, Saran. Although Talib’s attorneys declined comment Wednesday, privately he’s been adamant that he did not fire a weapon during the domestic disturbance and told Clint Bowen, a co-defensive coordinator during his career at the University of Kansas, that only his mom pulled the trigger. “I talked to Aqib two days ago," Bowen said. "I told him, 'I just read something about you firing a gun.' He said, 'Man, I didn't do a thing. It'll all come out soon.' He just kept saying that...He said, 'I didn't do that. That was my mom. It's all going to come out.'''

    Oh come on, his mom/lawyer told him to say that. Even though these aren't the brightest people in the world, either they or their lawyer clearly recognized that its a lot better for everyone involved if moms takes the rap and Aqib walks. He's not "throwing his mother under the bus", they are trying to do what they can to keep $$ coming into the family.

    Cops had enough to arrest both, might be tough to get out of it with only his high-character mother as support for his story.
