Apparently influenced by news of Patrick Kane’s run-in with a cab driver and/or the resurrection of punter Todd Sauerbrun’s career (UFL style), who once laid hands on Latka, Bucs cornerback Aqib Talib ended up in jail on two misdemeanor counts for — you guessed it — an altercation with a cabbie.
The Florida Highway Patrol has issued a press release explaining that the initial call came from I-275 at Gandy Boulevard in Tampa, where a cab driver said he was receiving verbal threats from the occupants of his vehicle.
Though the cabbie said nothing about being Tom Cabled by Talib when reporting the incident, the driver apparently said once cops arrived that he’d been
punched knocked out his chair by Talib.
Thus, Talib was arrested for battery and for resisting a law enforcement officer without violence.
Hey, Talib should be happy that his own car was no where near the scene of the arrest. Because there’s a chance his own car would have been searched.
And, given his history, all that that implies.
