Aqib Talib, mother issued felony warrants

A troubling situation for Bucs cornerback Aqib Talib took a dramatic turn for the worse on Tuesday.

Felony warrants were issued Tuesday for Talib and his mother Okolo Talib on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, according to a statement released by the Garland, Texas police.

Okolo Talib turned herself in to police Tuesday.  Aqib Talib is expected to turn himself in later in the week.  Bond for his warrant is set at $25,000.

We were wondering if Talib would be able to keep his job with the Bucs this morning and suspect this felony warrant will help make the Bucs’ decision easier.   (Although they can’t do anything until the lockout ends.)  Now Talib has bigger issues to worry about.

Police believe Aqib Talib “attempted to physically assault and did shoot at” Shannon Billings, the boyfriend of Talib’s sister.  They also believe Okolo Talib shot at Billings.

The charges are second degree felonies and carry a range of punishment of 5 -20 years in prison.

  1. “They also believe Okolo Talib shot at Billings, who is the sister of Talib’s sister’s.”

    Wouldn’t that make Shannon Billings Talib’s sister also? Just asking. I get sooo confused.

  2. Trade his sorry ass to the Vikings, they embrace the criminal element and they need help in their secondary. Even if he can’t play anymore, so much the better, they wouldn’t even notice it.

  3. “They also believe Okolo Talib shot at Billings, who is the sister of Talib’s sister’s.”

    ———————————-

    Then we can all agree that … Okolo is the sister of Aqib Talib? Weird…

  4. I wonder how much bigger this story would be if he were a Dallas Cowboy.
    I venture to say about 34.76x^2 the amount of normal comments.

  5. How cute…mother & son twin felony warrants. “Give me the gun mom, you missed your chance to kill him, let me shoot him”…..Lol.

  6. Um… this sounds pretty wild. Dez and Aqib are taking over PFT. PFT is becoming the TMZ of football. This sounds so… hmmm, no words.

  7. “She was the meanest cat in old Garland town..
    ..she was the meanest cat, she really mowed them down..
    She had no heart at all….Ma, Ma, Ma, Ma Talib..”.

  8. Ughhhhhh. They needa cut him,it hurts me cause I love his playing style but we can’t have this. Idk wats happened to my team but this is arrest I think 7 on the year. We needa draft and trade or do something to get a corner. Maybe go after nnamdi??

  9. “Trade his sorry ass to the Vikings, they embrace the criminal element and they need help in their secondary. Even if he can’t play anymore, so much the better, they wouldn’t even notice it.” – The Fake Jimmy Smith

    Umm, fake Jimmy, you really want to talk about teams that embrace the criminal element when Johnny Jolly is back in prison and your DB Underwood just plead guilty to soliciting a prostitute?
    That’s pretty stupid, even for you and your retard-adjusted Wisconsin IQ

  10. “Attention, Special Bulletin….
    Ma Talib is the FBI’s most wanted woman
    Her picture is in every post office
    If you have information about this person
    Please call your nearest police department….

    ….She was the meanest cat in old Garland town
    ..She had no heart at all…no, no, no, heart at all..”

  11. Maybe the NFL owners will consider Mama Talib one of their “partners” as well as her son.

  12. well this is exactly why the lockout needs to end so things like this don’t happen. not to cross into the melodramatic or anything.

    I’m sorry, how many posts are there today about Packer players’ legal infractions? Get a life.

  14. Come on people…use your brains. Someone can be the sister of your sister without being your sister.

    Example:

    Let’s say you and your sister have different fathers, but the same mother. Your father can also have another kid with a different woman, making that kid your sibling but not the sibling of your sister.

  15. Aqib got a 21 on the Wonderlic, then went in to try to explain to the Police how he didn’t commit aggravated assault with a deadly weapon…. did anyone really think this wasn’t going to result in 15 years?

    time to draft a new future felon

  16. Cue the post-CBA-deal announcements in tampa:

    “Some players will not be invited to return to the team. These players, in alphabetical order, are as follows:

    Talib, Aqib

    …that is all.”

  17. So when the NFL starts back up is Roger going to suspend him for a season, sans pay? After all, he did that to a QB who WAS NOT CHARGED WITH ANYTHING last year.

  18. What an idiot. He can easily be a top 5 corner but he doesn’t know how to behave himself off the field. I feel bad for the bucs for having to deal with this

  19. I got my post deleted. I must have violated the Terms of Service. The ones that don’t exist.

    Sensitive, wimpy liberals must be running this site or something, LOL.

  20. Longest Yard 2? Give me a break…

    How many bad character guys do the Bucs really have? A couple? Every team in this league has a couple. 1/3rd of the players have a criminal record.

  21. Is ‘gun toting felon’ a represented class in the Brady vs. the League suit? What is this now, six or seven arrests since the union decertified? And if I’m an owner, why do I need to give these guys half of my revenue again?

  22. Grown men that can’t function without a guardian from the team to set them right? The players will cave soon, because most of them are functional illiterates. Notice what’s hapenned in the last week, and at an accelerated pace? Half the league may be in jail, or dead before long. Sad!

  23. M-is for the many guns you gave me.
    O-means that she’s only shooting cold.
    T-is for the tears she shed to save me.
    H-is for the bling of purest gold.
    E-is for her eyes with hatred shining.
    R-means right and right she’ll never be.

    Put them all together, they spell MOTHER, a word that means all the world to me.

    Apologies to whoever wrote the original.

  24. I can’t imagine what Thanksgiving is like at the Talib house. You’ve got to be packing heat just to get in the front door.
    “Hey, does anyone want that last piece of pie?”
    BLAM BLAM BLAM
    “Uh…guess not….”

    Great parenting, mom!
    *****************************************
    LOL…Agreed. Wonderful role model.

  26. What next? Eric Mangini busted trying to boost a Pistachio-Covered Cheese Log from the deli at Giant Eagle?

  27. Good thing this happend in Texas, Plex is still in the can and he shot himself. If it was in NYC Aqib and mom would be looking at life.

  28. Can you really blame him too much when the woman who raised him thinks it’s Ok to shoot at someone?

    How the hell is he going to know better?

  29. What is this now, six or seven arrests since the union decertified? And if I’m an owner, why do I need to give these guys half of my revenue again

    If I am a FAN…why should I support these hooligans with money for psl,season tickets or regular stadium tickets ???…I WONT !!

  30. Well, once the Bucs release him I’m sure he’ll find a soft landing spot with the Ravens. You’ve already got a knifer, a vehicular killer, and one (that we know of) woman beater. Surprising they haven’t had a public heat packer yet…although hey, actually, either Talib or Meriweather will fill that bill.
