Aqib Talib expected to be indicted

St. Louis Rams v Tampa Bay Buccaneers Getty Images

We mentioned just a little while ago that a grand jury was expected to decide Friday whether to indict Bucs cornerback Aqib Talib on charge of aggravated assault.

Apparently, the decision may already be made.

The St. Petersburg Times reports via law enforcement officials that Talib is expected to be indicted.  Talib’s lawyer warned that it won’t be official until Friday, but the paper seems to nearly certain of the ruling.

The news doesn’t come as a surprise, and it means Talib has a long and potentially costly legal battle ahead.

    The real question is, will he and his mom share the same jail cell?…….This way she can show him more of the motherly love, guidance, and general well being most normal mothers have for their children……Or they could bust out together…..

    Aqib will be charged with at least one count of “lightin’ up that worthless mofo boyfriend’s ass wit’ Momma’s Glock if he shows his ugly head roun’ here again.”.

    I guess this officially puts Tampa in the Asomugha sweepstakes, as well.

    So this is what Ray Lewis meant when he said crime would go up during the lockout…

    Hey, if my sister’s BF beats her up and she calls me asking to help her, in the excitement of saving her, I might attempt to put a bullet in his rear. And what mother would not attempt to take full and sole responsibility to save her son?

  9. jammer88 says: May 26, 2011 12:21 PM

    his name is Aqib and his mother’s name is monlqbi or something like that. GUILTY! Enuf said?

    Rosenthal, The old adage for grand jury proceedings is the prosecutor could “indict a ham sandwich”. There is no doubt the grand jury will indict him.

    That is why law enforcement is saying “it’s a done deal”. For the grand jury to not issue a “true bill” the prosecutor has to basically go in and not ask any questions.

    Basically, the way it works, the Prosecutor calls witnesses, questions them with leading questions and then the grand jury decides. The defense cannot ask questions, object, or do any of the things that would normally happen in a hearing.

    My point being, do not believe that an indictment is any indication of the outcome of this matter.

    I’m tired of people calling Taleb a great talent!! I sat in Raymond James stadium and watched mike Wallace constantly beat him deep with the rifleman Charlie batch throwing to him or devery Henderson running by him. Ej biggers played better coverage when he replaced Taleb. He is way over- rated!!! Sometimes people act like he is deion or champ Bailey. Let’s be honest, Taleb was drafted by gruden and Allen, who may have had the worst draft decade ever!!! I don’t care if players on the team I root for are mean or nice, or fan friendly!! I do care that there are available to play and put team before themselves. Taleb does neither!!! This should be no surprise- he has problems at Kansas, he gets thrown out of rookie symposium, he breaks a teammates face in his 1st training camp ever, he gets in trouble in London and tells his coach off, he beats up a cab driver!! When will this story end!! Hopefully for the bucs, soon!!!!

    Momma tried to raise him better, but her pleadings he denied. That leaves only Aqib to blame cause momma tried.

    talib had talent no doubt….this is gonna hurt. asomugha should and will be the highest priority as soon as this lockout is lifted. if we dont land him…i hope the front 4 can hold their own cause our secondary will take a MAJOR hit

    Time and again we see situations where African players find themselves running up against the authorities. It’s time to take a stand and say enough of this racism. I’m tired of seeing these people unfairly targeted by the police. They’re just trying to live their lives and it’s sickening to see how they’re treated by the legal system.

    Why can’t this country develop some type of program to deal with these situations in a different fashion?

  19. scubasteve4930 says: May 26, 2011 1:07 PM

    flyboy….you do know that he SHOT at somebody, correct? This has nothing to do with racism

    If you are serious I would love to get some of what you are smoking! The guy shot a gun at someone. Take your fake racism act go out and do the same thing and see where you end up. I guarantee you wouldn’t be sitting at home wondering if you will be indicted.

    The Country does, in fact, have a way to deal with these problems. It’s called an “intact” family with parents (preferably two) who rear their children to respect authority and obey the law.

    Some elements of the society choose to ignore these principles or the framework to support the principles. Kids then learn their morals and ethics from the street which is often a disaster.

    By the way; racism is not defined by color. Blacks can be as racist as whites. Something to think about…

    The only person “unfairly targeted” was the poor bastard that got shot at

    OK, first things first. Talib (this is how you spell it) is a very good talent, don’t make any mistake. He’s a classless idiot and he causes headaches constantly for his team, maybe really badly this time, but he is a very good corner. You are on crack if you think EJ Biggers played better when he replaced Talib. Biggers isn’t bad but he’s not even close to the caliber of corner of Talib. Maybe you missed the game where nobody in your secondary could cover Calvin Johnson? I’ll tell you one thing. If Talib would have been there it would have been much more difficult to exploit your secondary.

    Next, worst draft decade? Really? Maybe you missed the years Matt Millen had to play in Detroit. All us Lions fans remember. Nowhere near the futility that idiot brought to the Motor City, trust me.

    Talib will be indicted, this will go to a trial, and before that trial is over or a plea deal is met…

    Talib will get in trouble again.

    (you heard it here first)
