Grand jury indictment expected for Aqib Talib

Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis didn't offer any specifics when presenting his theories on crime to ESPN's Sal Paolantonio last week. However, a concrete example of how crime increases when there is no football might mitigate some of the skepticism Lewis has received (including from teammates).

Our nomination: Buccaneers cornerback Aqib Talib who, despite the ongoing lockout, has had a busy offseason. Unfortunately, he's not organizing unofficial team workouts, or running hills near his home to keep in shape, or even riding bulls. This is strictly law-enforcement-related.

A felony arrest warrant was issued for Talib on March 29, after police accused him of trying to pistol whip -- and later firing shots at -- his sister's boyfriend on March 21. A day later, Talib voluntarily turned himself in to law enforcement officers in Dallas County, Texas. On Thursday, TambaBay.com's Rick Stroud reports that a Dallas County grand jury is expected to indict Talib for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

"However, the indictment is not expected to officially be reported until Friday," Stroud adds. "Earlier this week, an examining trial determined there was enough evidence in the shooting case involving Talib to be heard by the the grand jury Wednesday."

Aggravated assault with a deadly weapon is a second-degree felony and is punishable by two to 20 years in prison. While we wait for Talib's case to make its way through the justice system, an indictment could be reason enough for NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to get involved. Talib was suspended during Week 1 of the 2010 season for violating the league's personal conduct policy, so he's familiar with the process.

But as long as there is a lockout Goodell can't punish Talib (news that should also make James Harrison happy, if only temporarily). Of course, if Talib is found guilty, a slap on the wrist from his employer will be the least of his worries.

Just another case where you can take the man out the hood but you can't take the hood out of the man.
This guy is nothing but a thug punk and is going exactly where he belongs, with all the other gangsta's.

Hey, Tampa Bay didn't pistol whip anybody, Talib did.  Don't make it sound like the Bucs had a part in this idiotic event.  Sounds like a scene from an old western movie meets Boys in the Hood.

The "Law of the Land" is the lowest standard of conduct. These guys can't conduct themselves above that standard? Quality individuals. Who cares the "Why"? It really doesn't matter. Sad.

Hahahahahahaha what an idiotic post.  The man pistol whipped another man.  No he didn't beat the crap out of him with his own fist, he took a pistol out and BEAT HIM.  Turned himself in because he did it.  Doesn't matter what was behind it..  There isn't a reason in the world you pistol whip a man.   So much for the vaunted Tampa Bay Defense.  Maybe he can star in "The Longest Yard' Part 3..... hahahahahahaha

Tampa Bay is really screwed now.  Their top DB going to jail and their top draft choice is going to spend more time in Rehab then in the starting line-up.
