If Aqib Talib was once considering action against the Dallas Police Department for falsely identifying him in an arrest, he seems to have gotten over it.
The Broncos cornerback told Adam Kurkjian of the Boston Herald that he held no ill will against them for smearing his name all over the internet when they had actually arrested his brother Yaqub recently.
“No, definitely not,” Talib said when asked if he is mistaken for his brother. “That doesn’t happen too much. But that’s some hard-working guys in Dallas. They were just doing their job and they made a mistake, an honest mistake, man. It happens sometimes, man.”
Considering the legal hurdles he’d have to clear to prove damages, Talib is probably best off taking the high road on this one, and enjoying his freedom in Denver.
