Never fear Officer O'Neal is here

Postby deerayfan072 » Mon Jan 29, 2007 3:35 pm

MIAMI — Shaquille O'Neal put his police skills to use early Sunday. O'Neal, the Miami Heat's All-Star center and a reserve officer with the Miami Beach Police Department, followed a driver who allegedly crashed into his Cadillac Escalade and tried to flee the scene, the team said.

O'Neal and bodyguard Jerome Crawford followed the driver for about five minutes. When the driver, identified by The Miami Herald as 18-year-old Emmnueo Cibrin of Tampa, stopped near a gas station, O'Neal approached the car and summoned a nearby police officer.

Police did not release an incident report Sunday night. Miami-Dade Corrections officials said they had no record of anyone by Cibrin's name being booked on a criminal charge, and it was unclear if he was ticketed for any moving violations.

The incident happened around 4 a.m., shortly after the Heat got home from a Saturday game in Chicago. O'Neal was helping Crawford, a team security official, unload luggage outside Crawford's home in Miami's Coconut Grove neighborhood when the accident occurred.

O'Neal, through the team, said Sunday night that he followed proper police protocol during the chase, including pursuing at a safe distance and speed. He contacted police officers along the way, he said

O'Neal was sworn in as a reserve officer in 2005. He has long said he intends to pursue a career in law enforcement when he retires from basketball

No kidding about the crying! I'm probably one of the more "massive" guys here at 6'3" and 320, and I think he'd still just crumple me up into a ball. I'd be running as fast as I could the other way...

Shaq has got some bum knees now. So all you need to do is kick him in the knee and run, lol.


Anyways, is anyone else extremely underwhelmed by this bit of news? Maybe if there was a high speed car chase or a shootout or something I could care a bit more. But all Shaq did was follow a guy who had no clue he was being followed, and then called the cops. I don't see how this could be news, lol.

I remember when Shaq first announced that he was interested in law enforcement. If I'm not mistaken, he mentioned that he was interested in becoming an undercover officer.

I immediately started laughing at the idea of Shaq becoming an undercover officer. He is so big and well known, that it would be impossible to go undercover, especially after he made his interest in law enforcement public. I mean, imagine you are intending to sell drugs, and you walk into the room, and you see Shaq sitting there.

Anyhow, he'll make a great uniform officer. However, his status makes the job a lot more dangerous. He will more than likely be targeted by criminals, and harassed often.
