Report: Aqib Talib told cops he was too drunk to know who shot him

If police were unclear about who fired the shot that ended up going through Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib’s leg, then they gained no clarity from talking to him.

According to Rebecca Lopez of WFAA, Talib told police he was at a park (not a strip club) and that he couldn’t recall much about the incident.

“Everything was a blur and I was too intoxicated to remember what happened,” Talib reportedly told the Dallas Police Department.

Well, that’s one way around the speculation that he might know the culprit.

But it does nothing to make this story any less bizarre, on a day when the rest of the Broncos are at the White House being congratulated for winning the Super Bowl.

  1. So if he was at the park and he was too drunk to know who shot him, didn’t he just confess to public intoxication? Book him.

  2. This guy should be suspended for the upcoming season, and have his Broncos Super Bowl ring taken away.

  3. You mean the gunman didn’t have the courtesy to tell Aqib he was going to shoot him ahead of time? How disgraceful! The Code Duello calls for a proper slap to the face with a dandy white glove before any shooting may begin.

  4. You got to pull the gun ALLL the way out before pulling the trigger.

    But, on a lighter note…since he is no longer a patriot……….no suspension!

  5. A millionaire football player drunk out of his mind so much that he does not know who shot him in a public park at 3 AM?

    The BS detector is going off!

    Wouldn’t getting shot sober you up?

  6. Who drove him to the hospital? Surely they know where they drove him from. I suspect strip clubs have security cameras. Shouldn’t be hard to show if he is telling the truth or not.

  7. When I was a young guy during the course of my employment with Uncle Sam I distinctly recall getting shot at as being a very sobering experience, evidently getting hit may be somewhat different.

  8. There is nothing bizarre about this at all. Talib is in a place where scumbags hang out, drunk out of his skull, he’s involved in a fight and shot with his own gun. I do ask if did not know where he was at…did he freaking drive there?

  9. I know Dallas police are still deep in their investigation of who killed JFK, but did they run a forensics on Talib’s hands for gunpowder residue?

  10. he knows who did it and within a week or so someone will end up shot or badly beaten….street justice!

    don’t snitch just get the business handled

  11. There is plenty of time for him to heal while missing OTAs and part of training camp. Then when he’s ready to play, he can continue to watch from the sideline with a 4-8 game suspension. That should be sobering enough for him.

    Rest assured, someone in that club knows what happened…only a matter of time until the truth comes out.

  12. The spin is already being discussed, he’s Teflon so nothing ever sticks….plus he’s a good player so it’s time to move on. We’ll read later that he was trying to be the peacemaker.

    He GOT SHOT. He didn’t shoot anyone. Why are you all so hateful and mad at him?

    Exactly. Talib was drunk in a shady night club. Bad choice. But the shooter opened up and shot someone else. Then shot someone else. And Talib was collateral damage. Nothing in the report says he was in an altercation that resulted in him getting shot.

    He was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Literally. He should have never been in that dive and he should have never been in any club that late. I mean, seriously. His intention was to drink himself silly and go to the White House for his first, and possibly only, time hungover. That is most concerning. He did nothing to get shot for, but you missed the Super Bowl Champion visit to the White House to get drunk all night. Stupid.

  14. C’mon now. The bullet entered his “lower right thigh area” and “exited his right calf area”. There is only one place that shot is coming from…His waistband. Aquib shot is dumb self.

  15. It is nothing short of poetic justice that Denver’s “victory” trip was overshadowed by yet another Bronco player doing something stupid and dangerous.

  16. so it is sounding more and more like he shot himself . . . in a bar . . . sounds like something that happened in NY a few years back no?
