Despite objecting to the charges and proclaiming himself innocnet, Aqib Talib was indicted for shooting a man in Texas. According to the ESPN report:
A Texas grand jury has returned an indictment for Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Aqib Talib, two months after he was charged with firing a gun at his sister’s boyfriend.
Police, who arrested Talib on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, have said they believe Talib and his mother, Okolo Talib, shot at the man March 21. The man was not injured.
Talib, 25, has been out on $25,000 bond since March 30. The indictment out of Dallas was not a return of a guilty verdict — it only means there’s an “official” charge. But no evidence on Talib’s side has been presented.
“The grand jury was not privy to a number of important facts,” Talib’s attorney, Jay Reisinger, said Friday in a statement. “We are very confident that once we have the opportunity to present all of the facts, this matter will be resolved in Mr. Talib’s favor.
“Aqib looks forward to putting this matter behind him and returning to the game of football.”
